|A plaque will be placed in Swansea’s Grove Place to commemorate the 19th Century scientist Sir William Grove.|
Sir William, was the founder of the Swansea Literary and Philosophical Society, and managed to combine a legal career with several important scientific achievements. In particular he anticipated the conservation of energy and was a pioneer of fuel cell technology. He was the first to produce electrical energy by combining hydrogen and oxygen in 1842, a technology that went on to supply water and electricity for space missions.
Just another example of a Welsh person having done great things for the world.
