From ArticleWorld

Big science refers to the change in the style of scientific research which occurred during the Second World War. This change in style refers to the establishment of large-scale research facilities funded through extensive government funding, in contrast to the earlier methods which involved individual research funded by philanthropy or industry.

Some of the products of big science include military inventions (the atom bomb), development in astrophysics (expensive satellites and telescopes, like the Hubble Space Telescope) and extensive research in biology (the Human Genome Project).
