The Wonder of Electricity

Can you imagine? Knowing nothing of artificial light. Your days being lit by the sun and the night by candle light? What a terrifying shock it would have been to observe the blinding light from a electric spark? The wonder of electricity, from creating light to moving the dead, electricity must have been incredibly frightening.

In a new series, Prof Jim Al-Khalili presents a story titled “Shock and Awe: The Story of Electricity”. A master storyteller himself, wonderfully captures and excites the viewer on the discoveries that eventually lead to the modern digital age. I won’t say anymore, except that i encourage you all to watch this.

  1. Jazakamullah for the link. Very informative. It is ironic how some of the ‘rational’ scientists who were trying to disprove God’s existence are actually the same ones who relied on God’s lightning and God’s torpedo fish to make some of the most significant advances. Subhan Allah.
