Electrical Experimenter (03:04) August 1915

Hugo Gernsback, editor

"A little to the left of the earth I see the sun--a wondrous sight. As there is practically no atmosphere on the moon the earth as well as the sun sail in a pitchblack sky. I see a big almost black disc appearing to me about 14 times as large as does the full moon on earth; old mother earth assuredly is an imposing sight. Around the circumference of the dark disc I see a wondrous pink fringe--it is earth's atmosphere illuminated from behind by the sun's rays."
This early issue of Electrical Experimenter is from August 1915. The cover story is about the government monitoring radio transmissions from the Sayville receiving station to protect neutrality between Germany and the U.S. in the period before World War I. Additional stories include “Television, or the Projections of Pictures over a Wire,” “Baron Munchhausen’s New Scientific Adventures” by Hugo Gernsback, and “An Interview with Guglielmo Marconi.”
