How Was It Discovered? Born in 1625, Giovanni Cassini was raised and educated in Italy. As a young man he was fascinated by astrology, not astronomy, and gained widespread fame for his astrological knowledge. Hundreds sought his astrological advice even though he wrote papers in which he proved that there was no truth to astrological predictions. In 1668, after conducting a series of astronomical studies in Italy that were widely praised, Cassini was offered a position as the director of the Paris Observatory.

Discovery of Our Galaxy. Iowa City: Iowa State Press, 1997. The Nature of Electricity Year of Discovery: 1752 What Is It? All forms of electricity are the same. Who Discovered It? Benjamin Franklin Why Is This One of the 100 Greatest? Electricity is one of our greatest energy resources and one of the few natural energy sources. Franklin’s electricity experiments were the first scientific ventures into the nature and use of electricity and uncovered its true nature. They set the stage for much of the scientific and engineering development in the nineteenth century and for the explosion of electrical development—batteries, motors, generators, lights, etc.

He lumped these categories together into larger groups that were, again, combined with other groups into yet larger classifications. He found that plants fit neatly into groups based on a few key traits and that order did exist in the natural world. By 1735 he had described more than 4,000 species of plants and published his classification system in a book, Systema Naturae. This system described the eight levels Linnaeus finally built into his system: species, genus, family, order, Class, Subphylum, Phylum, and Kingdom.
