Science & Technology

  1. Nikola Tesla, second fiddle to Thomas Edison in the public eye of history, created the method of electricity delivery power companies still use today.
  2. It was the great and arguably mad, if not simply depressed, writer Edgar Allen Poe who wondered in print whether madness was a symptom of the highest intelligence.
  3. That would be 17th-century genius — and the father of physics — Sir Isaac Newton who held the fairly modest view his genius was simply a glimpse at previously-held knowledge.
  4. Perhaps his most famous invention — the death ray — Archimedes invented the water screw, a device that culls and carries water from below ground to thirsty people topside.
