Happy Birthday!

Sir Charles Wheatstone

was born February 6, 1802
(d.10/19/1875.)

The English physicist is noted for having his name attached to the Wheatstone bridge,
a device that accurately measured electrical resistance and not over any river at all.

No more about him is known, except some junk about inventing the concertina.
See: Chris Timson's fine concertina FAQ

In fact, Wheatstone didn't invent that bridge, he just attached his name to it.

However, by way of compensation, he DID invent Ohm's Law, at least in the form which keeps me in a job today.
