19 October Knowledge History - Science, Engineering and Management







1860 -  The Società Anonima del nuova motore Barsante e Matteucci (Anonymous Society of the New Barsanti and Matteucci Engine) was formed in Florence, Italy, to manufacture internal combustion engines.  On 5 Jun 1853, Father Eugenio Barsante and engineer Felice Matteucci were the first to record having designed a three-stroke gas engine. They obtained British patents. The first engine in actual operation was installed in 1856 at the Maria Antonia Railway Station in Florence.


1973 -  A US Federal Judge  declared the ENIAC patent invalid and belatedly credited physicist John Atanasoff with developing the first electronic digital computer, the Atanasoff- Berry Computer or the ABC. It was built in 1937-42 at Iowa State University by Atanadoff and a graduate student, Clifford Berry.
