Hedy Lamarr’s 101st Birthday

Today ist the 101st birthday of Golden Age of Hollywood Actress Hedy Lamarr, and I would like to take the opportunity and point your attention to today’s animated Google Doodle:



As you can see, Hedy Lamarr far more than one of the favorite actresses of Hollywood’s Golden Age. She was also an accompolished scientist who contributed significantly to the discovery of principles and to inventions that form the basis of WiFi, sattelite communication and other such areas without which the internet in its current form could not exist.
So please people: If you think of Hedy Lamarr, think of her as the scientist first and as the actress second. Glamour fades, glory in science is forever!
