#DidYouKnow? The 1st electric headlamps were introduced in 1898 on the Columbia Electric car. The company only built electric cars and headlamps were an optional accessory!

Did You Know? Danish physicist Hans Christian Oersted demonstrated the connection between electricity and magnetism (now commonly known as electromagnetism) by deflecting a magnetic needle with an electric current.

This week in 1968, Robert Noyce, Andy Grove and Gordon Moore incorporated Moore and Noyce electronics. It was renamed Integrated Electronics Corporation, or as we know it today, #Intel.

This week we’re recognizing the first NASA astronauts, The Mercury Seven. The astronauts were announced on 9 April, 1959, and piloted the manned space flights of the Mercury program from May 1961 to May 1963. The seven original American astronauts were Scott Carpenter, Gordon Cooper, John Glenn, Gus Grissom, Wally Schirra, Alan Shepard, and Deke Slayton.

In 1962 while working at GE's research lab, IEEE Fellow Nick Holonyak Jr. invented the first visible light-emitting diode (LED). The only light emitted from LEDs at the time was infrared. Holonyak used a mixture of gallium arsenide and gallium phosphide (GaAs phosphide) to create a red glow, disproving his fellow scientists. Although LED light bulbs have only recently begun to replace incandescent bulbs, it's a step toward a more energy efficient future. How many LED bulbs do you own? @IEEExp

Italian physicist and radio pioneer Guglielmo Marconi succeeded in sending the first successful transatlantic transmissions of radio waves in 1901. This demonstration disproved those who told him that the curvature of the earth would limit transmission to 321 kilometers (200 miles) or less. The message was the Morse-code signal for the letter “s” and traveled more than 3,218 kilometers (2,000 miles) from Poldhu in Cornwall, England, to Newfoundland, Canada. Marconi is an IEEE Honorary Member @IEEExp

162 years ago today, Nikola Tesla was born. We’re recognizing this inventor, electrical engineer, mechanical engineer, physicist and futurist. His AC electricity supply system is still used today as the global standard for power transmission. Tesla was an IEEE Fellow. Happy birthday, Nikola Tesla! @IEEExp
