Alessandro Volta’s 270th Birthday

Alessandro VoltaTwo hundred and seventy years ago, on this date, a historic figure was born – Alessandro Volta. He is considered the father of the battery and is a pioneer of electrical science.

He invented what is known by some as “voltaic pile” and by others as the first electrical battery – in 1800. It produced a steady electric current and unleashed a wave of scientific discoveries. In 1881, it was decided that the unit of electric potential would be called the volt in honor to Volta’s great contributions to electrical science.

When you google something today you will most likely notice the doodle they have placed to remind people of Volta’s life and achievements.Google Doodle Alessandro Volta
