Edwin Howard Armstrong, American electrical engineer, c 1940.Etching of Armstrong (1890-1954) who was born in New York City and  studied at Columbia University where he invented the regenerative circuit. This which was the first amplifying receiver and reliable continuous-wave transmitter. In 1918, he devised the superheterodyne circuit, which provided a highly selective means of receiving, converting and amplifying weak, high-frequency  electromagnetic waves. Finally, in 1933, he invented the wide-band frequency modulation radio transmission system (now known as FM radio), which he perfected, virtually eliminating interference problems from static.

Albert Einstein, German theoretical physicist, 1935.Albert Einstein (1879-1955) is pictured here on 5 January 1935 lecturing to the American Association for the Advancement of Science at Pittsburgh. Einstein was discussing his latest theory- that it was possible that the universe might be finite. Einstein made fundamental contributions to physics which include his special (1905) and general (1916) theories of relativity, which proved the concept that time does not exist at the same rate for everyone and everything. Special Relativity produced the equation which expresses the equivalence between matter and energy: E=mc squared. In 1921, he received the Nobel Prize for Physics. His Jewish faith meant  that he had to leave Germany during the Nazi period, and went to live in the United States of America, taking citizenship.  ©Associated Press/SSPL / The Image Works
