There are countless other impactful inventions (by non-Americans as well as Americans of course) that have not been mentioned here, but these twenty stand out.
Particle accelerators, Landing humans on the moon, Identifieng new elements. The list goes on, and on.

Something to add to the list? Feel free to comment! Thanks.

Religious fundamentalists and extremists destroyed the Islamic culture of science and made it what it is today, a fanatical Theocracy. It appears that, if they can have their way, the Christian version will ultimately do the same thing to the American culture of science and ultimately destroy America as we have known it.
