Thomas Edison was born in 1847 in Milan, in the state Ohio. He grew up in Michigan. Since his childhood he liked reading and making experiments. He had a very little schooling. Edison worked as a gatekeeper at the observatory of his father. Then he worked on a railway station selling newspapers and sweets. Also he worked as a telegrapher. He set up a laboratory in his father's basement.

He was strongly motivated in his inventions because he wanted to overcome his partial deafness. He created the first industrial and research laboratory in Menlo Park, in New Jersey. During the eighty-four years of his life Thomas Edison patented over 1000 inventions. In his laboratory Edison did not work alone. He had some talented assistants from England, Germany, Switzerland and other countries.

The important part of Edison's activities was making the official drawings for the United States Patent Office in Washington. The employees of that office proved that the inventions were only Edison's. Grosvenor Lowery was Edison's lawyer whose work was to increase the quantity of money for Edison's laboratory which needed more and more equipment.

He developed a machine which could send four telegraph messages down one wire for the Western Union. He invented the carbon-button transmitter which is still used in telephone speakers and microphones. He created the phonograph and the incandescent light bulb. In lower Manhattan in 1882 Thomas Edison supervised the installation of the first permanent commercial central power system in the world. In 1884 he built a new laboratory in West Orange, in New Jersey. There Edison's team developed an early movie camera, an instrument for viewing moving pictures, the alkaline storage battery. Nearly 400 patents were received by Edison for inventing the electric light and power. He continued his work until his death in October 18, 1931 in West Orange, New Jersey.

Isaac Newton

If you ask someone, who is the most brilliant Englishman, he/she will probably answer: Isaac Newton. To my mind, it's true.

The outstanding English physicist and mathematician Isaac Newton was born on the 4-th of January in 1643 in Woolsthorpe in England. He invented the infinitesimal calculus, laid the foundations of modern physical optics and formulated three laws of motion that became basic principles of modern physics and led to his theory of universal gradation. He is regarded as one of the greatest scientists of all times.

Newton received a bachelor's degree at the Trinity College, in Cambridge. During the next two years while the University was closed because of the plague, Newton returned home, where he thought about how certain natural phenomena might be explained, and formulated the bases of his first major discoveries. When he returned he became a professor of mathematics.

In 1666 Newton discovered the nature of white light by passing a beam of sunlight through a prism. He invented a calculus about 1669 but he formally published his ideas only 35 years later. He built the first reflecting telescope in 1668.

Newton's most famous publication, Philosophiae Naturalis Principa Matematica(Mathematical Principles of Natural Philosophy) contains his work on the laws of motion, the theory of tides and the theory of gravitation. His laws of motion laid the basis for classical mechanics, and the theory of gravity was particularly important in working out the motion.
