1831 : Michael Faraday’s Production of Electricity from Magnetism

Faraday produced the opposite of his last discovery: this time, exploring through a series of experiments how electricity could produce a magnetic effect in the surrounding area, employing his unique ability of visually conceptualizing complex concepts. His interpretations constituted the foundation of field theory, which struck in a novel way from the straight-line Newtonian physics that had failed to explain the same phenomena.
