Our Scientists - Communication

 

Description

Revolutionary ideas can change the world! When a scientist proposed to use optical fibre to transmit messages some 40 years ago, his revolutionary idea was not widely accepted. But it is this very idea that has made the Internet and broadband communications all possible today. The Titanic disaster took place almost one hundred years ago. It was a miracle that more than seven hundred out of two thousand people on board the Titanic were saved when the ship sank. Those who had been saved were saved by one scientist who dreamt the idea of transmitting sound without wires.
