BLACK HISTORY MONTH
About that cell phone of yours....
Did you know that the cell phones we are so tied to today came about because of the work of the late Dr. Henry T. Sampson Jr., an African American inventor and pioneer in the technology used in cell phones. He invented the gamma-electric cell, which converted nuclear radiation into electricity. This is widely regarded as the first major step into wireless communications, because it laid the foundation for the later invention of the cell phone.
