The last time anything like this happened was in 1888 when Heinrich Hertz detected the radio waves that had been predicted by James Clerk Maxwell's field-equations of electromagnetism in 1865," added Durham University physicist Tom McLeish.
What did scientist Heinrich Hertz demonstrate in 1888?
That task fell to a small group of "Maxwellians," including Oliver Heaviside (who simplified Maxwell's math into the famous "Maxwell's equations") and Heinrich Hertz, who in 1888 demonstrated the existence of Maxwellian radio waves.
