Inventions And Discoveries Attributed To scientists by mistake
Famous inventions and discoveries attributed by mistake to the wrong people, If we examined the history of many discoveries and inventions, we would find many things strange, exciting, and surprising; that what we consider to be facts beyond a doubt, are in fact things that we do not know much about. There are some facts that are called an inspiration in schools and universities or some things on television, or that we read about in books, and we think that they are correct, but in fact, they are totally wrong. You will not believe, for example, that “Galileo” did not invent the telescope, and that “Henry Ford” was not the owner of the first car in history, and that “Columbus” did not discover the continent of North America, and that “Alexander Graham Bell” was not the inventor of television, and “Thomas Edison” was not the inventor of the lightbulb, as many believe. Also, the inventor of the movies, or discoverer of X-rays, are “well known,” but each was not the real owner (and if you wanted to know my opinion, “Edison” is only a thief of the inventions of Maher and a smart businessman), and what we learned when we were young was not an absolute truth.
The same thing was repeated with many inventions and discoveries, which were attributed to the incorrect owners; therefore, we have collected for you in the following list the most important of the “facts” that many believe are correct but are actually false.
|10 Inventions And Discoveries For Wrong People|
1- Electric bulb
But this lamp was not bright enough, and it did not work for a long time, and was very expensive; making this lamp’s usefulness fade before it appeared, the several attempts that followed also were not very successful, ending with the lone credit going to “Edison”.
In 1888, the first film was invented- or what is known as the kinetoscope. The first cinematic images serial, it was a more effective way and is attributed to the Edison patents, although it was William Dickson, who worked as a part of a team for Edison at the time, who did most of the work.
Dixon tried to obtain the patent, repeatedly, but he died fairly young of cancer, and in the end, the kinetoscope became known as an innovation of “Edison. In 1913, the first film was produced. Edison received several awards, such as The Medal of Albert from the Royal Assembly of Art of Great Britain, and also a Medal of Congress in 1928.
Once again we return to Edison, but this time with the X-ray; mistakenly assumed to be another work of Edison, this invention goes back to the German physicist Wilhelm Röntgen – who, in 1895, produced and detected electromagnetic radiation in a wavelength range. This became known as the X-Ray, or Röntgen Ray. This opened many opportunities in the fields of medicine and physics, and Röntgen was the first winner of the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1901.
4. The telescope
The first telescope in history was in 1604 at the hands of German spectacle-maker Hans Lippershey. Lippershey used the lens and concave convex to bring pictures in from outer space, and in the year 1611 used two convex lenses with an inverted image in the telescope to increase accuracy, but despite all this, many believed the telescope to have first been an innovation of the Italian “Galileo”.
5. The radio
In London in 1895, the scientist Guglielmo Marconi claimed to the public to have invented a device that could receive words via radio airwaves.
But, in fact, the device was invented by Nikola Tesla, who had published articles explaining how it works and how to use it to receive wireless signals; although the Tesla claimed that he got the signals from long distances, he did not bring the matter to the public, which caused the uproar.
6. The plane
However, the illegal immigrant from Germany called Gustav Whitehead had preceded them, a full two years, through a plane manufactured by himself, but “Gustav” has not been able to document the event in pictures at that time; perhaps if he had, it would have changed the history of flight as we know it. As well, 9 months before the “Wright Brothers” tested the first aircraft in the world, the inventor Richard Percy had the first real test flight; using a design quite different from what the Wright brothers had used, but that was also successful. However, the Wright Brothers’ flight became much more well-known, leading people to assume they were the very first.
7. The phone
Many people believe that Alexander Graham Bell was the inventor of the first telephone, although some scientists do believe it was another man, Elisha Gray, that actually invented it.
However, the U.S. House of Representatives in mid-2002, decided that Italian Antonio Meucci is the true inventor phone, and not Graham Bell, as it is known. According to the text of the resolution, the Italian had invented this as of the year 1860, as described by a local newspaper in the Italian language.
In December, 1871, Meucci temporarily presented a request for a patent; however, due to a lack of the money for its renewal when it expired in 1874, and as Graham Bell was also working in the same laboratory as Meucci on the invention, -as stated in resolution, he completed the project and renewed the patent in his own name. He later presented in an international exhibition in Philadelphia; the effects of this invention gained enormous attention and led to the assumption that Graham Bell and his associates were the first to create the telephone.
8. The Theory of Evolution
As in inventions, scientific theories may also be worked on by a number of people at the same time; however, only one of them is often given the appreciation and respect, thanks to being first in appearance when the theory is announced. The Theory of Evolution was actually first stated by the Greek philosopher Aristotle (546 – 610 BC). I think that the human has animal origins, and I believe that life started under water; life then moved to the Earth after the water began to dry up as a result of the sun, and not, as it is stated by “Charles Darwin”, that the first time it was assumed that the forces of nature and not the psychic is the reason for the appearance of life on the planet.
A lot of scientist objected this theory because evolution did not happen for all creatures!
9- The continent of North America
Although the idea that Christopher Columbus was the first European who discovered the continent of North America was sacred in the history of many states, however, the first discovery of North America was by a Scandinavian sailor of ISK family who lived between the tenth and eleventh centuries called Leif Ericsson.
Ericsson made the journey from Scandinavia North America before Columbus, born 500 years ago, and the Vikings established their villages on the green land and the eastern coast of Canada; to be the first Europeans to trod upon this part of the world.
10. The Atlantic Ocean
A journey of 34 hours and 3,600 miles, perhaps the American pilot and engineer Charles Lindbergh was the first to cross the Atlantic Ocean by air alone, but about 85 pilots had preceded him to overcome that waterway over eight years before.This achievement was achieved the first time by a pair of English Pilots named John Alcock and Arthur Brown, and repeated this flight frequently. It came to Lindberg to achieve flying alone, which means that he had been without sleep for 34 hours!
