Michael Faraday and the Electrical Century: Revolutions in Science
Iwan Rhys Morus (au)
The only scientist to appear on the British 20 pound note, Michael Faraday, is one of the most recognizable names in the history of science. Faraday’s forte was electricity, a revolutionary force in 19th-century society. The electric telegraph made mass-communication possible; hopeful inventors during the 1840s looked forward to the day when everything would be done by electricity. By the end of the century, electricity really was in the process of transforming everyday life. Here is the story of Faraday’s upbringing in scientific London and his apprenticeship at the Royal Institution with the flamboyant chemist, Sir Humphry Davy, against the backdrop of a vibrant scientific culture at the center of an empire near the peak of its power.
