And lest we think the man who re-formulated Maxwell’s equations into the forms we currently know (see yesterday) has been forgotten (possibly only I think this, never having heard of him before), there’s actually a layer of ionosphere named after him.
(I discovered this not by looking up Heaviside, though he would’ve deserved as much, but by reading about Tesla’s research into transmitting power and energy wirelessly. I thought something like, “Hey, there’s Heaviside again. This guy I’d never heard of until yesterday certainly gets around. Where has he been all my life?” (an approximation… my actual thought was more along the lines of “Should I have heard of him? Was I just not paying attention in physics?”))
