LET’s start the trip now
1658 | clock
April 1629 – July 1695
INVENTED PENDULUM CLOCK IN 1658
“I believe that we do not know anything for certain, but everything probably.”
Christiaan Huygnes Story
Christiaan Huygnes was born in April 1629 and died on July 1695 in the Hague, Netherlands.
He began his early education at home under private tutor. He continued his study in the University of Leiden to study law and maths. His early publications focused on mathematical problems and in 1654 he turned his attention to the telescope.
His greatest invention is the invention of the first pendulum clock in 1658, with an error of less than one minute a day. He went on to refine his clock and ultimately limiting errors to less than ten seconds over twenty four hours.

1685 | Camera
May 1641 – June 1707
INVENTED FIRST CAMERA IN 1685
“You press the button, we do the rest.”
Johann Zahn Story
Johann Zahn was born in March 1641 and died in June 1707. Zahn was considered as the first photographer who invented camera in 1685.
Throughout his life, he produced many books to spread his idea about camera. Among his famous books are Oculus Artificialis Teledioptricus Sive Telescopium and Specula Physico-Mathematico-Historica Notabilium ac Mirabilium Sciendorum.
The first camera made by Zahn in 1685 was small and portable enough to be practical for photography. He also demonstrated the use of mirrors and lenses to erect the image, enlarge and focus it.

1687 | gravity
Jan 1642 – March 1727
DISCOVER GRAVITY LAW IN 1687
“If i have seen further than others, it is by standing upon the shoulders of giants.”
ISAAC NEWTON Story
Isaac Newton was born in Jan 1642 and died in Mar 1727. Isaac Newton was a premature baby; and small enough to fit inside a quart sized cup; and whose chances of survival were dim.
In 1687, his famous book Principia Mathematica explained the three laws of motion that laid the framework for modern physics. The most popular anecdote about Isaac Newton is the story of how the theory of gravitation came to him, after being hit on the head with a falling apple.
Legend has it that a young Issac Newton was sitting under an apple tree when he was bonked on the head by a falling piece of fruit, a 17th-century “aha moment” that prompted him to suddenly come up with his law of gravity.

Bartolomeo Cristofori Story
Bartolomeo Cristofori was born in May 1655 and died in Jan 1731. He spent his youth and adolescene serving as the apprentice to the Nicolo Amati, one of the best Italian violin makers of his time.
In 1688 he caught the attention of the Ferdinando de Medici, son of the Grand Duke of Tuscany, Cosimo III. Then he was recruited to become his official violin maker and musician. Along his career with Ferdinando, Cristofori started working on new instruments. His first work was on keyboard instruments.
Cristofori apparently invented the first piano in 1709. By 1726, he had arrived at the all essentials of the modern piano action.

1839 | BICYCLE
Sept 1812 – Jan 1878
INVENTED FIRST BICYCLE IN 1839
“Every great invention is first a creation for the creator himself.”
Kirkpatrick Macmillan Story
Kirkpatrick Macmillan was born in Sept 1812 and died in Jan 1878. His father was a blacksmith and at the age of 12, Kirkpatrick became an apprentice to his father. When he was young, he involved in variety of works.
Macmillan assisted his father at the forge when he chanced upon a hobbyhorse. Hobbyhorse was a two-wheeled bike that had to be propelled by pushing one’s foot on the ground. He decided to built one for himself.
Upon completion, he realised what a radical improvement it would be if he could propel it without putting his feet on the ground.
He soon started working towards it and in 1839 came up with the first working model of a pedal bicycle.

Alexander Graham Bell Story
Alexander Graham Bell was born in March 1847 and died in August 1922. He receive most of his education from his mother who was an unusually gifted painter and pianist, despite her deafness.
In 1870, after the death of two of his brothers, the Bell family moved to Canada for the sake of his health. Expanding on his father’s work of teaching deaf people to communicate, he began working on transmitting telephonic messages.
While pursuing his teaching profession, he conducted his research to perfect the harmonic telegraph, so as to transmit several telegraph messages simultaneously over a single wire. Alongside, he was also drawn towards another idea of transmitting the human voice over a single wire.
On march 10, 1876, he produced the first intelligible telephone call, when he summoned his assistant, with words that Bell transcribed in his lab notes as “Mr. Watson-come here-i want see you”. Watson heard his voice through the wire and thus received the first telephone call.

KARL BENZ Story
Karl Benz was born in November 1844 and died in April 1929. Benz had originally focused his studies on locksmithing, but he eventually followed his father’s steps toward locomotive engineering.
During these years, while riding his bicycle, he started to envision concepts for a vehicle that would eventually become the horseless carriage. In 1885 Karl Benz designed and built the world’s first practical automobile to be powered by an internal-combustion engine.
Although the original Benz car first ran early in 1885, its design was not patented until January 29, 1886. Benz & Co. was founded in Mannheim in 1883 to build stationary internal-combustion engines.
The company completed its first four-wheeled automobile in 1893 and produced the first of a series of racing cars in 1899. In 1926 the Benz company merges with Daimler-Motoren-Gessellschaft to form Daimler Benz, maker of Mercedes-Benz automobiles. .

GUGLIELMO MARCONI Story
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.

WRIGHT BROTHERS Story
Wilbur Wright was born in April 1867 and died in May 1912 while Orville Wright was born in 1871 and died in January 1948. They are known as Wright Brothers. They were sons of a minister. There were a lot of books in their house, and they were encouraged to ask questions and find out about whatever they thought was interesting.
By the 1890s, the Wrights were interested in flight, especially the gliders of Otto Lilienthal. In 1892, they opened the Wright Cycle Shop in Dayton. They started making airplanes in their bicycle shop.
In 1899, Wilbur invented a simple . system called “wing-wraping” that twisted or “warped” the wings of a glider, causing it to roll left or right. The Wright Brothers first produced glider in 1902 which made more than 700 flights. In 1903, they built a powered airplane that had a propeller and a light but powerful engine.
On December 17, 1903, Orville Wright piloted the first powered airplane that covered 120 feet and lasted 12 seconds in the Kill Devil Hills. The same day Wilbur Wright flew their “Flying Machine” 852 feet and the flight lasted for 59 seconds. In 1906 the Wrights’ Patent was granted and “flying machine” was called an aeroplane.

INVENTED RELATIVITY IN 1905
“Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination encircles the world.”
ALBERT EINSTEIN Story
Albert Einstein was born in March 1879 and died in April 1955. Einstein did not begin speaking until age of two. When Albert Einstein was 5 years old, his father gave him a compass and that compass inspired him to explore the world of science. By sixteen years old he’d published his first scientific paper.
In 1990, he started teaching maths and physics The theory of special relativity was published by Einstein in 1905, in a paper called ” On the Electrodynamics of Moving Bodies”. E=mc2, also called the mass- energy equivalence, is one of the things that Einstein is most famous for.
The theory simply states that the speed of light (constant, c) is the fastest speed in the universe and relates energy (E) and mass(M). It’s talk about how time and distance can change due to the different speeds of an object and its observer. His Theory of Relativity is connected with the invention of the atomic bomb. He discovered that light is made up of small particles called photons and was awarded the Nobel Prize of Physics in 1921.

HENRY FORD Story
Henry Ford was born in July 1863 and died in April 1947. Ford left home at the age of 16 to take an apprenticeship as a machinist at a shipbuilding firm in Detroit. In 1890, Henry Ford was hired as an engineer for the Detroit Edison Company.
In 1893, his natural talents earned him a promotion to chief engineer. The company sold its first car which was the mode T car on July 23, 1903. Ford become president of the company in 1906.
In 1908, Ford’s company began making the Ford Model T car and went to develop the assembly line mode of production. Henry Ford started using assembly line in his factories in 1913. Because of the assembly line, making new cars would not take as long. By 1914, Ford had sold over 250,000 Model T cars.

JOHN LOGIE BAIRD Story
John Logie Baird was born in August 1888 and died in June 1946. By his early teens, he had develop a fascination with electronics and was already beginning to conduct experiments and build inventions. In 1906, Baird studied electrical engineering at the Royal Technical College in Glasgow.
However, his studies were interrupted with the outbreak of World War 1. John Logie Baird was not accepted for the military service due to his chronic illness and therefore he worked for the Clyde Valley Electrical Power Company for a while. After the war ended he tried several unsuccessful businesses and then went to Britain in 1920.
In 1924, Baird transmitted a flickering image a few feet away. In 1925, he succeeded in transmitting a telivised image of a ventriloquist’s dummy. On 26 January 1926, he gave the world’s first demonstration of true television before 50 scientists in an attic room in central London.

ROBERT HUTCHINGS GODDARD Story
Robert Hutchings Goddard was born in October 1882 and died in August 1945. When he was a child, he became interested in science and his parents encouraged him by gifting him a microscope, telescope and a subscription to the Scientific American journal. After reading science fiction novel “The war of The Worlds” aged 16, Robert became fascinated with space flight.
Robert was not a healthy child and fell behind at school. Often too ill to attend classes, he became an avid read and he made good use of his local library. His health slowly improved and Robert Goddard attended South High Community School in 1901, graduating in 1904.
In 1912, Goddard moved to Princeton University with a research fellowship; however he left the following year suffering from tuberculosis. In 1915, he launched his first gunpowder rocket outside the university building, but realized they were very inefficient in converting energy into motion. On March 16 in 1926, he launched his first liquid fueled rocket; it reached a height of 41 feet and averaged a speed of about 60 miles per hour..

NEIL ARMSTRONG Story
Neil Armstrong was born in August 1930 and died in August 2012. He was the eldest of three children. Neil’s passion for aviation and flight was kindled when he took his first airplane ride at age 6.
He became a licensed pilot on his 16th birthday and a naval air cadet in 1947. He studies in aeronautical engineering at Purdue University. He completed his degree in 1955 and immediately became a civilian research pilot for the National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics (NACA), later the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA).
He flew more than 1100 hours, testing various supersonic fighters as well as the X-15 rocket plane. In March 16, 1966, Armstrong, as command pilot of Gemini 8, and David R. Scott met with Agena rocket and completed the first manual space docking maneuver. On July 16, 1969, Armstrong, along with Edwin E. Aldrin, Jr., and Michael Collins, blasted off in the Apollo 11 vehicle towards the Moon.

Steve Jobs was born in February 1955 and died in October 2011. After attending college for six months, Jobs got bored and dropped out from school. By 1974, he became a video game designer for Atari. Steve Jobs became more and more interest in philosophy. He quit his job and took a trip to India to find “enlightenment”. Upon his return to California, he went back to work for Atari.
In 1976, Wozniak develop his own personal computer and Jobs was impressed by his electronic genius. At Job’s family garage, the two envisioned their own computer company. At the age of 21, Jobs along with Wozniak formed Apple Computer and started selling their first computer model, Apple 1.
After three years , Apple 2 was released and Jobs started to seek investors and marketing experts. The company quickly grew and went public just four years after it started in 1980.
In 1985, Jobs resigned from Apple. In 1996, Apple bought NeXT Inc., and by 1997, Jobs returned to Apple as its CEO. In the succeeding years, Apple released revolutionary products including the iPod (2001), Macbook (2006), iPhone (2007), iPad (2010).
