Google Doodle Honors Alessandro Volta

A new Google Doodle is celebrating what would have been the 270th birthday of the Italian physicist Alessandro Volta (1745-1827), who in the year 1800 published a theory that led to the modern battery.

With this invention Alessandro Volta proved that electricity could be generated chemically and debased the prevalent theory that electricity was generated solely by living beings.
