TRA VOLTA DAY
Alessandro Volta 1745 – Yes, Volta shares a birthday with Travolta
We honor Volta even now since the word “voltage” – meaning the unit of electrical potential – is named for him.
“You must be ready to give up even the most attractive ideas when experiment shows them to be wrong.”
*It’s February 18 and hopefully you’re not ready to give up because this experiment has proved to be wrong. Keep plugging along.
In honor of Volta’s birthday, try to see how little electricity you can use today.
