We changed the world with engineering
based on trustworthy science

Mid-nineteenth century — in a project to connect Great Britain and the US with a submarine telegraph cable — investors lost mountains of money because they trusted a person having no understanding of the science needed. When investors learned to trust scientists and engineers understanding the science, then the project succeeded.

The cable changed the world. The lesson that engineering based on trustworthy science was needed also changed the world.
