This week in 1915, the first transcontinental telephone call was made between New York City and San Francisco. Although the line was completed and tested the previous summer, the official call took place on 25 January 1915 to coincide with the Panama-Pacific International Exposition celebrations.

This week we are recognizing IEEE Life Fellow and “Father of the cellular phone,” Martin Cooper. Cooper conceived and led the effort to develop a personal, portable radio handset that could be used as a normal telephone. He also formulated the Law of Spectral Efficiency (Cooper’s Law), which states that the maximum number of voice conversations or equivalent data transactions that can be conducted in all of the useful radio spectrum doubles every 30 months. Here’s to you, Marty!

Before NASA was formed, there was the National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics (NACA). NACA was started by U.S. President Woodrow Wilson to supervise and direct the scientific study of the problems of flight. NACA was on the cutting edge of technology in the early decades of flight, before eventually being absorbed by NASA in 1958.

A star supported by neutron degeneracy pressure is known as a neutron star, which may be seen as a pulsar if its magnetic field is favorably aligned with its spin axis. Since neutron stars are born in a core-collapse supernova explosion, they rotate extremely rapidly as a consequence of the conservation of angular momentum. They can rotate up to 60 times per second when born. If they are part of a binary system, their rotation rate can increase to over 600 times per second. This means a neutron star could rotate more than 1,200 times in the time it takes the Ferrari LaFerrari to go from zero to 100 kmh (60 mph).

The telegraph revolutionized long-distance communication, reaching the height of its popularity in the 1920s and 1930s. After hearing about a newly discovered electromagnet while sailing home from Europe in 1832, Samuel Morse began developing a prototype for the electric telegraph. He worked with his partners, Leonard Gale and Alfred Vail, and demonstrated the electric telegraph using Morse code for the first time this week in 1838.

Saturn is easily identifiable by its large planetary rings, which are composed of mostly ice particles with small amounts of rocky debris and dust. These rings average approximately 20 meters (65 feet) in thickness and extend from 6,630 km (4,119 miles) to 120,700 km (74,999 miles) outward from Saturn’s equator. The rings are so large, that If you were to drive at 120 kmh (75 mph), it would take you 258 days to drive around one of Saturn’s rings.

This week in 1983, Apple released LISA (Local Integrated Software Architecture). Although it wasn’t a huge success, it paved the way for later and greater Apple products. Happy birthday, Lisa!

This week we’re recognizing electrical engineer, Edith Clarke. Clarke’s expertise in power systems was influential in the design of dams in the American West. She paved the way for women in engineering, achieving many milestones along the way. Clarke became the first woman fellow of the AIEE (later becoming the IEEE), first woman to present a technical paper to the AIEE, first woman to earn an electrical engineering graduate degree from MIT and was the first woman to teach in the engineering department of the University of Texas-Austin. While working for General Electric, Clarke filed a patent for a graphical calculator that was used for solving electric power transmission line computations.

IBM has a long-standing relation to the history of hard drives dating back to 1953. When they introduced the first 1 gigabyte hard drive in 1980, it was the size of a refrigerator, weighed around 249 kg (550 lbs) and cost USD $40,000. Thankfully the price of hard drives has come down in the last three decades!
