Now Online: Chapter 10

In Chapter 9: Standing On The Shoulders of Giants, I offered readers a very thumbnail sketch of the process by which the scientific investigation of electricity in the 19th century led to the revelations of of Relativity and Quantum Mechanics in the 20th.   This account may have seemed somewhat tangential to the main story of Townsend Brown’s life, but believe me, there was a method to my madness here. 

In Chapter 10: Impossible, And Not To Be Considered, you will meet the man Townsend Brown called "my first physics teacher," no less a luminary than Nobel Laureate Robert Andrews Millikan.  Millikan made his own substantial contributions to the trail of revelations that started with Planck and Einstein, and will make a pivotal contribution to Townsend’s education –  but not for the reasons you might think.
