В 1813 г. родился ученый и инженер Эрнст Вернер фон Сименс

He can rightfully be called the European Thomas Edison, even though he was born 30 years earlier: he studied, invented and immediately put his inventions into practice. Among his numerous achievements, there are inventions in the field of telegraphy and the construction of telegraph lines all around the globe, including the London – Calcutta and St. Petersburg – Sevastopol lines. The tramway, the electrical elevator, the dynamo and many, many other new things were invented and created by the great scientist. He also invented the word “electrical engineering”: before him, the term “applied theory of electricity” was used.
