萨慕尔.摩斯 (Samuel F.B. Morse) 发送出第一个电报消息
1844524

第一个电报消息是什么呢?1844524日,萨慕尔.摩斯通过一条连接华盛顿特区与巴尔地摩的实验线路,成功发送了一则电报消息:「上帝作了些什么?」这是从圣经箴言第23章第23节所摘录出来的,并且被登录在纸带之上。摩斯听从他一位朋友的女儿安妮.爱尔沃兹 (Annie Ellworth) 的建议,而选择了这一句话。这个实验的成功,永远改变了整个国家的通讯系统。但是摩斯有兴趣的,却不只是电报而已。


What was the first telegraph message? Sent by inventor Samuel F.B. Morse on May 24, 1844, over an experimental line from Washington, D.C., to Baltimore, the message said: "What hath God wrought?" Taken from the Bible, Numbers 23:23, and recorded on a paper tape, the phrase had been suggested to Morse by Annie Ellworth, the young daughter of a friend. The success of the experiment would change forever the national communication system. But Morse wasn't just interested in the telegraph.
