1901

Guglielmo Marconi performed the first radio transmission across the Atlantic Ocean. The first transatlantic radio signal was sent from Pordhu (Cornwall, England) to Signal Hill (St. John’s, Canada). The experiment surprised many theoreticians who didn’t think electromagnetic waves could travel great distances. This day marked the beginning of the communications revolution that has, within a few decades, permitted the entire globe, thanks to the reflecting role of the ionosphere, to send and receive signals from any point on the Earth
