Fact #90658


Short story:

Thomas Young, British philologist/physician, is born in Milverton, Somerset. In 1806, Young will usher in the age of sound recording, when he records the vibrations of a tuning fork on a rotating drum covered with wax. He will, unfortunately, be unable to listen to his recording, because no playback mechanism has yet been invented.
