He started out as a young boy, working in a print shop. He was lucky enough to retire from printing, which is when he picked up his interest in science, among other things. Finally, later in his life after he had already become famous for his experiments on electricity, he became a politician; doing anything he could to achieve freedom for the United States of America. In the following paragraphs, I will describe how these steps of Franklin’s life led him to become a very big part of the
The first time she began to adore astronomy was when she helped her father built a small observatory. She had many things going for her like becoming a librarian, working with her father at a bank but, science was the one thing she enjoyed and wanted to pursue the most. Marie Mitchell was born and raised in Nantucket, Massachusetts on August 1st, 1887 and died June 28th, 1889. She was raised by her Quaker parents William Mitchell and Lydia Coleman. Her parents highly valued education and wanted her to receive the same education that boys receive.
Einstein used a combination of theories on mass, energy and light to come up with his formula of e=mc2 and from that he became the father of modern physics. Michael Faraday was an uneducated English blacksmith who grew up in the 19th century. When Faraday was 20, he received tickets to a series of lectures at the Royal Institution that was the beginning of his journey into science . Faradays interests in science soon brought him to the top of his field where he discovered the invisible fields of electricity and magnetism .He created the law of conservation of energy which is the total amount of energy in an isolated system remains constant over time. Faraday also discovered the electromagnetic waves when conducting an experiment that later on led to the invention of the electric motor.
Describe the life of the personality you have studied (2010 HSC) Born in Mannheim, Germany in 1905, Albert Speer was persuaded to take up architecture by his father who made a significant impact on Speer’s life. He pursued his architecture studies at the Institute of Technology in Karlsruhe in 1923 and graduated in four years later, two years before the Great Depression. He became Professor Tessenow’s assistant, a supporter of the Nazi Party in the same year, opening the door for Speer. It must be noted that Speer and his family were an apolitical family. Speer’s first introduction to Nazism was in 1930 where he attended a meeting which Hitler spoke at.
Sumner's parents played a huge role in the education of their son. They would work extra hours to be able to buy him textbooks and other reading materials needed for his education. In 1911, at the age of 15 Sumner enrolled at Lincoln University, where he sat and passed a written exam in order to be accepted because he did not have a high school diploma. In 1915, Sumner graduated from Lincoln University at the age of twenty. He formed many good friendships at Lincoln; two of the most important were his relationships with the president of Clark University G. Stanley Hall, and his relationship with James P. Porter who was the Dean of Clark University and a professor of psychology.
He was able to enter Westminster School at the age of thirteen, and from there went to Oxford, where some of the best scientists in England were working at the time. Hooke impressed them with his skills at designing experiments and building equipment, and soon became an assistant to the chemist Robert Boyle. In 1662 Hooke was named Curator of Experiments of the newly formed Royal Society of London -- meaning that he was responsible for demonstrating new experiments at the Society's weekly meetings. He later became Gresham Professor of Geometry at Gresham College, London, where he had a set of rooms and where he lived for the rest of his life. His health deteriorated over the last decade of his life, although one of his biographers wrote that "He was of an active, restless, indefatigable Genius even almost to the last."
Albert Einstein was born in Ulm, in Württemberg, Germany, on March 14, 1879. Six weeks later the family moved to Munich, where he later on began his schooling at the Luitpold Gymnasium. At the age of 16 he moved to Switzerland and graduated from the Federal Institute of Technology. In 1902 he became a clerk with Swiss Patent Office, where he worked with new inventions. He was an extraordinary individual who studied Theoretical physics which is a branch of physics which employs mathematical models and abstractions of physics to rationalize, explain and predict natural
Ellis Jr. was an early pioneer in physics, he was born in the year 1924 and he passed away in 1989 on December 15th at the age of sixty two. Ellis received his Master of Science degree at Yale University. After receiving his Master's Robert Ellis taught at Tennessee A&I. Robert Ellis then went to earn his doctorate at the University of Iowa. Robert Ellis was head of experimental projects at the Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory up until 1956. Upon obtaining his PhD, Ellis returned to Tenessee A&I as a professor a few years before joining in the year 1956 a group working on controlled fusion, Project Matterhorn in Princeton.
While visiting America, Einstein was offered a job as a professor at Princeton University in Princeton, New Jersey. This is where he decided to live permanently. Although Albert missed Germany, he was happy he had a job and a safe place to live away from the Nazis. Before Albert came to America, he lived in Switzerland, and worked for the Swiss Patent Office. There, he published five papers on the Special Theory of Relativity and a short book on the General Theory of Relativity.
The writer of a TV show, especially today, has a highway to communicate with the entire world. At a time where there were so few options for programming writers like Rod Serling basically had exclusive means to communicate to the world. Mr. Serling seemed to take that opportunity seriously and chose to provide more than just entertainment. He chose to entertain by leading the masses to a certain frame of mind, a place where we were able to notice the unimportance of some things and always the ever-present bigger picture. With over 200 produced teleplays over just 25 years, Rod Serling is definitely one of the most successful screenwriters in television history (Vahimagi).
