Guglielmo Marconi was born in April 1874 and died in July 1937. He possessed a strong interest in science and electricity since he was young. In 1894, he began experience with radio waves as while he was a student at the Livorno Technical Institute.
Marconi founded the London-based Marconi Telegraph Company in 1899. Through his original transmission traveled a mere mile and a half, on December 12, 1901, Marconi sent and received the first wireless message across the Atlantic Ocean.
Beginning in 1902, Marconi worked on experiments that stretched the distance that wireless communication could travel, until he was finally able to establish transatlantic service. For his work with wireless communication, Marconi shared the Nobel Prize in Physics with Karl Braun in 1909. Not long after that, Marconi’s wireless system was used by the crew of the RMS Titanic to call for assistance. On his beloved yacht, Elettra, he conducted experiments in the 1920s proving the efficacy of the “beam system” had been adopted by the British government as a design for international communication.
