The genius of Michael Faraday
25 January 2012
Sir John Meurig Thomas, (in the centre of the photograph together with Dr Cyril Isenberg & Prof Sarah Spurgeon), was a former Director of The Royal Institution of Great Britain.
He spoke about Michael Faraday at our Kent Centre on 24 January. In his lecture he gave a penetrating insight into the life and work of Faraday, whose life's research was carried out at The Royal Institution.
One of the questions asked was "If Faraday had been awarded a Nobel prize , for what would it have been awarded?". Sir John replied that he would have had to receive six Nobel prizes for revolutionary innovative discoveries in six areas of physics and chemistry.
