Ben was the youngest son of Josiah and his 15th child. Ben stopped going to school at age 10 to work full-time in his father’s candle and soap shop. Ben was later apprenticed to his brother James print shop at age 12. James constantly mistreated, beat his younger brother, and wouldn’t let Ben publish any of his writings. At age 16 he used a fake name, Mrs.
Robert Oppenheimer was director at the Los Alamos site. Though an American, he had studied in Europe for years, and that was one reason why General Groves picked him for the job” (Claypool 45). After the bomb was set off and Oppenheimer stated that he was “destroyer of worlds”, that quote not only became a part of history but told a story to the American people as to who J. Robert Oppenheimer was and how the world’s most destructive weapon came to life. “Robert Oppenheimer was born on April 22, 1904. He attended Harvard University, Cambridge University in England and then GÖttigen University in Germany.
One year after opening, it was deemed the largest testing laboratory in the world. Thomas Edison was a creative inventor that pushed the science world forward 100 years by inventing the lightbulb, quadruplex transmitter, telegraph, helping with the making of the telephone and much more. Plus he had a major positive impact on his decade by serving in the civil war, saving lives and creating jobs. He also had a major impact on the world by allowing safe lasting light with the light bulb, easy communication with the telegraph, and electrical distribution. Next time you call a friend or turn on the lights, think of Thomas Edison, because without him, they wouldn’t
The theme of science is illuminated by the notion of electricity and "[its] potential to reanimate corpses" (Brown "The Science"). The theme of religion is connected to religious books, philosophies, and actions. One prominent conflict between the themes revolves around Victor Frankenstein's idea of creating life. Throughout most of his career, Frankenstein was involved with the sciences and gained a great interest in the "human frame" (30) and "the physical secrets of the world" (19). He started an experiment for the sake of science, but saw it as a "[success] in discovering the cause of generation and life" (31).
For example, he invented many things that are crucial to today’s world, propelling us into the never seen before future. He invented the alternating current, or AC, generator, that today is powering every home across America. He is the person invented the speedometer, allowing us to track our speeds on the road. One of his most famous inventions was the Tesla Coil which regulated the electric current in people’s houses. He also help the military, inventing a boat piloted by remote control.
He talks about things from the “establishment, that which [he] first formed, called the Union Fire Company” (Franklin 82) which was a big deal back then to inventing a new fireplace. He writes about his good deeds because Franklin wants to show what good Americans can do. His son would probably not have care as much, but the general public would care how Americans can prosper. Part three is all about how he prospered, how he lived the ‘American Dream’ Some believe that Benjamin Franklin wrote about his good deeds because he wanted to show Great Britain how great America was. He wanted to show that they could grow and prosper, that the Americans do not need Great Britain to survive, that they are fine by themselves, maybe ever
Franklin was known for creating many things that we still use today, and we will continue uses for many years to come. Inventions that we still use today would be the lightning rod, street lighting, odometer, Bifocal glasses, and the discovery of Daylight Saving Time. Franklin invented the lightning rod to protect the building from lightning; Franklin believed this was the most important inventions. With street lighting, he only improved it by using the scientific method to help improve the quality of light. As he describe it in his Autobiography, "I, therefore, suggested composing them of four flat panes, with a long funnel above to draw up the smoke, and crevices admitting air below, to facilitate the ascent of the smoke; by this means they were kept clean, and did not grow dark in a few hours, as the London lamps do, but continu'd bright till morning."
Later, he also became involved in politics and became one of the founding fathers. Benjamin Franklin made significant impacts on America with his inventions and politics. Besides being one of the Founding Fathers of America, Franklin was well-known for his magnificent inventions. One of Franklin’s most famous inventions is the lighting rod. “May not the knowledge of this power of points be of use to mankind, in preserving houses, churches, ships, etc., from the stroke of lightning, by directing us to fix, on the highest part of those edifices, upright rods of iron made sharp as a needle...Would not these pointed rods probably draw the electrical fire silently out of a cloud before it came nigh enough to strike, and thereby secure us from that most sudden and terrible mischief!” (Franklin qtd.
had let loose upon the world... my monument of thought and rash." (Shelley 65) In Mary Shelley's novel, Frankenstein: The Modern Prometheus, Victor Frankenstein is the modern Prometheus because he played with fire to create life. Prometheus is the important person who was credited with creating human life. The very old stories say that he molded them from clay, and then gave them fire which made human life change (and get better). The fire ended up going forward life and gave them advantages that they would've never had before the gift of fire.
The first accomplishment was when he created a brushless AC motor “He came up with the idea for a brushless AC motor.” This is an accomplishment because he was the first to create the brushless AC motor. Another one of Nikola Tesla’s accomplishments are, “The Nikola Tesla is one of the most distinguished honors presented by the Institute of electrical engineers.” This shows that an award named after him means it’s an award for him. There is even a statue named after him on goat island “The Nikola Tesla statue is located on goat island to honor Nikola Tesla.” That shows that he got a statue for him which means that’s a huge
Benjamin Franklin realized that lightning is discharged from the clouds during a thunderstorm. In 1752 Franklin did the experiment thanks to the help of his son William Franklin. When the thunderstorm, started both Franklin and his son went into a shed, flew a kite high in the air and brought a electric charge down the wet sting of the kite, but Franklin saw that the kite’s loose threads were standing up, so he put his knuckle on a key that was at the end of the string and saw a electric spark. Because of the experiment, Franklin was able to prove that lightning is electricity. Also Franklin was able to discovered many things about electricity that people didn’t know before him.
Even though it is very dangerous, he still wants to build a nuclear reactor. David would like to make a collection of all the radioactive elements. He also starts to research all of the incidents that have occurred with radioactive materials. This year we have learned about the elements and Physical Science. David does a lot with the elements, especially the radioactive elements.
Benjamin Franklin was born in Boston on January 17, 1706. Ben was the 15th child there were nine brothers and seven sisters. His father wanted him to be a ministry of a church but instead he went to a grammar school. Later at age ten Ben was taken out of grammar school and started to work in his family 's candle and soap shop. At age twelve ben took a job as an apprentice at his brother 's printing shop.
