The second was responsible for such things as the transistor,the solar cell, lasers, synthetic crystals, high fidelity stereo recording,sound motion pictures, radio astronomy, negative feedback, magnetic tape,magnetic "bubbles", electronic switching systems, microwave radio and TVrelay systems, information theory, the first electrical digital computer,and the first communications satellite. Guess which one got to tell theother how to run the telephone business?
