Maxwell worked out the mathematics of electromagnetic wave propagation and here demonstrated their physical existence. Lodge identified the need of resonance between transmitter and receiver, thus leading Marconi's successful practical application

"'Taking pictures' explores the issues and pitfalls of filming across a cultural boundary - through interviews with Australian filmmakers and by sampling their powerful award-winning documentaries about PNG [Papua New Guinea] - including the 'Highlands trilogy', 'Trobriand cricket', 'The sharkcallers of Kontu', Cannibal tours' and 'Man without pigs'. It also covers the work of indigenous PNG filmmakers, and their own experience of making sense of film and culture.

The sun by L Golub( Book )

3 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 224 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Essential for life on earth and a major influence on our environment, the Sun is also the most fascinating object in the daytime sky. Every day we feel the effect of its coming and going--literally the difference between day and night. But figuring out what the Sun is, what it's made of, why it glows so brightly, how old it is, how long it will last--all of these take thought and observation. Leon Golub and Jay M. Pasachoff offer an engaging and informative account of what scientists know about the Sun, and the history of these discoveries. Solar astronomers have studied the Sun over the centuries both for its intrinsic interest and in order to use it as a laboratory to reveal the secrets of other stars
