Alexander Stepanovich Popov, a Russian physicist, was born Mar. 16, 1859. Nearly everyone knows that Guglielmo Marconi was the inventor of radio, but nearly everyone is wrong about this. Marconi received the Nobel Prize in 1909 for the "development" of radio, not the invention – lots of other people were ahead of him here.
A still from the movie about Russian radio inventor, Alexander Popov. Sputnik In 1901, Popov became Professor of Physics at the ‘Electrotechnical Institute of Emperor Alexander III’.
Popov was the chair of the Department of Physics at St. Petersburg University in 1901 and director of the St. Petersburg Institute of Electrical Engineering in 1905. On May 7, 1895, Popov demonstrated that a receiver could detect the electromagnetic waves produced by lightning discharges in the atmosphere many miles away.
