Not illustrated. 1893 Excerpt: ...disconnecting the wire joining the middle cell to the adjacent one, in order to put in anothor cell. At the instant of breaking connection there was a vivid flash, followed by a loud explosion. The cell was completely wrecked, and several persons standing near were thrown backwards and deluged with acid. The heavy iron clamps which secured the top to the sides of the cell were forcibly broken. and the iron handle thrown to the ceiling, breakin;, ' out a section of lath and plaster where it struck. The explosion, of course, was due to the spark caused by breaking tho circuit igniting the uncombined hydrogen and oxygen gases in the cell. The above-mentioned journal says a similar accident occurred in Pittsburgh several years ago, with serious results. In this case the cells were in a box closed with a lid, and the explosion occurred while an examination was being made by the aid of a candle, the flame of which ignited the gases that had accumulated before the lia was raised. Other cases have been noted, and as uncombined gases are always present near the end of a charge, due to the fact of the plates only taking up a portion of the gases released at that time, great care should be exercised in approaching a light or breaking a connection, where the situation is such that the gases may have had an opportunity to accumulate Closed cells, such as are used with phonographs, are particularly liable to this accident. I do not think there can be very much risk from this cause; but perhaps some electricians can say. I never hoard of a case in this country. J. M.

The book about John Michell (1724-93) has two parts. The first and longest part is biographical, an account of Michell’s home setting (Nottinghamshire in England), the clerical world in which he grew up (Church of England), the university (Cambridge) where he studied and taught, and the scientific activities he made the center of his life. The second part is a complete edition of his known letters. Half of his letters have not been previously published; the other half are brought together in one place for the first time. The letters touch on all aspects of his career, and because they are in his words, they help bring the subject to life. His publications were not many, a slim book on magnets and magnetism, one paper on geology, two papers on astronomy, and a few brief papers on other topics, but they were enough to leave a mark on several sciences. He has been called a geologist, an astronomer, and a physicist, which he was, though we best remember him as a natural philosopher, as one who investigated physical nature broadly. His scientific contribution is not easy to summarize. Arguably he had the broadest competence of any British natural philosopher of the eighteenth century: equally skilled in experiment and observation, mathematical theory, and instruments, his field of inquiry was the universe. From the structure of the heavens through the structure of the Earth to the forces of the elementary particles of matter, he carried out original and far-reaching researches on the workings of nature.

The Birth of British Television

When the BBC launched the world's first regular, high-definition television service on 2 November, 1936 it was the culmination of decades of technological innovations. More than this, however, the service meant that the principle of television had finally found its place. The Birth of British Television – A History traces the early history and development of television, from the experiments of amateurs to the institutionalised developments that led to the world's first regular, high definition television service. Author Mark Aldridge provides a clear, in-depth and accessible introduction for those either exploring the period for the first time or seeking new insights into the beginnings of the industry. In tracing the origins and development of television, Aldridge focuses on a number of important factors including the attitude of the press towards early television and examines the way that expectations of television changed over time prior to its official launch. Utilising new research, this illuminating study examines how the aims for a new television service developed, and the extent to which content and technology were linked. The Birth of British Television approaches this formative period from several perspectives, from private individuals to the BBC and government, while also examining the broader opinions at the time towards the new medium through press reports and feedback from the general public. Also included is an assessment of early programming, which helps to offer a new and profound evaluation of the development of early television. Mark Aldridge is a Lecturer in Film and TV Studies at Southampton Solent University, UK. He specialises in British television and both film and television history. His previous publications include T is for Television (2008), an analysis of the work of Russell T. Davies, co-written with Andy Murray.

Here's the Tesla collection you've been waiting for: 214 figures; 668 pages; and 107 articles, letters to editors, and lectures. All the famous lectures and articles that you'd expect are here, You'll also get his many letters to editors, commenting on Marconi, Edison, and many issues of the day. And if that wasn't enough you'll also get other articles that you've heard about but probably never seen. This is an amazing collection that will give you the most complete look into the mind of Nikola Tesla, who has been called the most important man of the 20th Century. Without Tesla's ground-breaking work we'd all be sitting in the dark without even a radio to listen to.
