of the beginning of the modern electrochemical methods of discovering
new elements for the periodic table.
Shown below is our replica of President J. Madison's glass disk type electrostatic ,high voltage low current, generator. We made this machine for The Montpelier Foundation, who are the trustees of Madison's home and property. They felt it important to show how well rounded president Madison was beyond being a valuable law maker. It also serves to demonstrate such an instrument adding to the interest of the exhibits.
|During the development era of electrostatic generators they served as handsome parlor toys, medical quack machines, and most important. significant scientific instruments.
|It is believed that president Madison acquired his generator at a time it was playing a major role as a scientific instrument. This is supported in part because president Thomas Jefferson and Benjamin Franklin statesmen / scientist contemporaries had similar instruments. In fact Benjamin Franklin used his to lay down the foundation of modern electricity and inventions such as the lightning rod. There for let us trace out just how valuable it was toward the future. its first virtue was that it could producer a stead flow of electricity making it easier to study and use electricity. One of the first engineering uses was in a telegraph system. In time they progressed to an important role in the development of instruments used in nuclear physics. Let us follow this path by examples.
James Madison Electrostatic disk generator We built for the Montpelier Foundation
|1st step James
Madison and atom smashing accelerators ---,
Today its role is as a symbol of the human races greatness and progress.
This instrument helps the Montpelier Foundation to show that president Madison and his colleagues shared a broad intellectual pursuit one that was needed to form nations with goals of freedom and enterprise.
It also helps us appreciate the jagged journey that scientific instrumentation can take to get us into the high tech world we live in today also where we might be going tomorrow.

to busting up an atom to see what it is made of.
|Combining the 3rd and 4th steps , A Van de Graaffs electrostatic generator and associated equipment. Incidentally the author built one of these in 1954 for an undergraduate school project. It was for accelerating protons through a potential difference up to 500,000 volts. As a student I chose building, one with an accelerating tube vacuum system 10-^6 mm. and extras, my goal being able to carry out an atom smashing experiment to further test E=MC^2 . This url leads the reader to another method of generating high voltages that were used in Atom smashing experiments of the early and mid 1900 's.

Why they are so important to collect, to preserve for our learning process assuring us a safe future. .
Below The growth of the telescope into the spectroscope combined with the generation of high voltage --current electricity gave
us Quantum Mechanics and a better understanding of the chemical world we live in.
Two of our beautiful replica of Galileo's Telescopes
plus a glass prism give us a very usable spectroscope.
|Galileo opened the Pandora's box of
Quantum Mechanics in his development of the high powered telescope. This led
to the invention of the spectroscope which allowed us to measure the
chemistry of the stars and everything else
Newton seems to have slipped up on discovering this one when he was studying the prism

Combining The of the instruments of optics and electricity.
|The instruments that
generate high voltage, high current of electricity when mixed with
gave us the unique ability to study the broad emf spectrum which motivated Maxwell's to build his wave equations and Planck's new particle quanta mechanical world
