Danes bi bil 103-ji Hedy Lamarr-in rojstni dan. Postala je filmska zvezda, kar jo je dolgočasilo, zato se je začela ukvarjati z znanostjo. V drugi vojni je pomagala zavezniškim silam z razvojem tehnologije razširjenega spektra in frekvenčnega preskakovanja. Ti tehnologiji sta osnova za moderne brezžične sisteme. Bila je neverjetna.

Today would have been Hedy Lamarr’s 103rd Birthday. She became a movie star, got bored, then got into science. She helped the Allies during WWII, developing spread spectrum and frequency hopping technology. Her work created the basis of modern Wi-Fi & Bluetooth. She was amazing.
