    Space and Time into a single Continuum

    the thing that comes to mind though is that this is too simplistic, given the past few year's demonstration of quantum communications. If quanta truly could be displaceable instantaneously regardless of distance, it would add quite the wrinkle to this, eh?

    Nope, didn't finish quantum physics in college.

    but in cosmological terms, 1+1=3 where you have extremely large values of 1...

    I'd like to see a film about Nikola Tesla. His legacy has been severely neglected.

    All kids in the US learn about Edison in grade school, but I never heard of Tesla until I took university physics.

    I agree 100%. Edison was America's darling, and deservedly so, but the smear campaign against Tesla's vision for AC was downright nasty. As history has shown, Tesla was right and the power grids we have are proof.

    These are from the entrance to Niagara Falls.

    I'm kind of not a fan of Edison.
    He was the father of General Electric yet pretty driven and cruel in some of the things he did.

    I just watched a great doc about Edison. It's too bad he was such a giant horse's behind because his company really helped throw civilization into the 20th century.

    Edison's personality reminds me of my father-in-law's. Both are prone to character disorder-induced smear campaigns. :)

    I've always found details about this guy fascinating:
    Philo Farnsworth - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    Since we were both born and raised in the same state.

    My understanding is he was so intense about his idea his thinking consumed a lot of brain power while functioning day to day.
    Most definitely a beautiful mind.

    If you scroll down you'll see the section where the article talks about his one and only TV appearance...

    Too bad we didn't have smartphones and apps 28 years ago when I took my first chem course.

    I never knew it was not planned either. It would've been hard to load a roll of film in a weightless state too.

    I loved Tang as a kid. I wonder if it's still around. I haven't seen it in grocery stores for years now.

    Wow! I vaguely remember his last name associated with the television. My grandfather was an engineer in the '50's and '60's and apparently knew enough about Farnsworth to build my mom's family's first television...in color. :)
    Had really no idea who Farnsworth was or just how important he was. So many innovators go unnoticed. I think it has to do with their personality types. And the fact that most people take those types of things for granted.

    Story about him that got me was his inspiration for a scanning image dissector was born from the furrows left after plowing the fields as farm boy!
    This evidently was his epiphany.
    So so amazing where the spark of genius can come from...

    I visited NASA Lewis Research Center in Cleveland with my physics class. We got to see the Zero Gravity Research Facility. I had a B&W photograph of the class that was taken at the facility by a staff member, but I don't know what happened to it. I'll post the picture if I ever find it and scan it.

    Might be a question leading to an obvious answer, but are you a med student, doctor, etc??? I definitely would liked to learn more about bacteriology and virology. :)
    Yeah I'm a med student 😄 I'm a first-year so I didn't learn about virology or bacteriology in uni , but I already know a lot from school and I read a bit , so ask me
