Tribute to the pioneers of the modern world.
. …after Faraday was made fellow of the Royal Society [,] the prime minister of the day asked want good this invention could be, and Faraday replied, “Someday you can tax it”
Without these pioneers we would be living in a world without electricity. Just imagine what you’re looking at now, the room around you, street lighting, cars and incalculable items would not exist. Everything depends on the assumption that electricity is everywhere and always available and will always be available.
I’m tried for going to the same places
doing the same things
as tens of thousands, hundreds of thousands
have done or gone before
Find a new direction
And go there.
– James W Quinn

“I’m often asked by parents what advice can I give them to help get kids interested in science? And I have only one bit of advice, get out of their way. Kids are born curious. Period. I don’t care about your economic background. I don’t care what town you’re born in, what city, what country. If you’re a child, you are curious about your environment.
