United States > History of electricity tour?

  1. Aug 21, 2013 #1
    Thales, Glibert, Guericke, Gray, Du Fay, Musschenbroek, Kleist, Franklin, Galvani, Oersted, Faraday, Sturgeon, Callan, Henry, Bell ...etc

    & all^ in order:wink:

    Schlesinger did an excellent job with "the battery"
    I've watched most of what BBC has to offer > Shock & Awe with Al-Khalili

    If anyone knows any other books/movies on the history, please notify.

    *Anyone know where I can tour? It'd be nice to see an actual electrostatic machine, Davy's carbon rods, Sturgeon's electromagnet, Farday's apparatuses, ...etc

    Looking to stay on this side of the pond:smile:
