Oliver Lodge, British physicist, 1904. Artist: Spy
Oliver Lodge, British physicist, 1904. Lodge (1851-1940) is best remembered for his investigations into the propagation of electromagnetic waves. He made valuable contributions to the development of wireless telegraphy and is said to have given the first public demonstration of wireless telegraphy. He conducted research on electrons, lightning and the ether. In 1893 he discredited the ether theory (an early attempt to explain the nature of the Universe) and paved the way for the theory of relativity.
