REGARDING the article “Salvage of Titanic icon” (The Advertiser, yesterday), bravo that history is not lost.
A federal judge in the US rules a salvage firm can retrieve the Marconi wireless telegraph machine that broadcast distress calls from the sinking Titanic ocean liner in the early hours of April 15, 1912.
Italian inventor, and joint Nobel prize winner of 1909 for physics, Guglielmo Marconi’s invention and development of wireless communication was an important step for mankind.
We must encourage invention, ideas and solutions and those individuals who forge ahead and are not deterred by others.
They do something worthwhile with their lives through war, peace and plague.
