Do you know who is Thomas Edison? Do you know what invention made him who he is? I choose this person because I like to know and understand what kind of scientist Edison is and he is a very important person because of his inventions.

They named it Edison in his honor. I believe this is the greatest achievement for him and that he made history with both his invention and laboratory. He was able to build the lab with the funds of the sale of Edison’s Quadruplex Telegraph.

But not all scientist had a lab to make inventions but had home labs because they did not have the money to build their labs.
