Innovation:  Rapid Evaporation
Location: Cambridge, United Kingdom
Year:  1758
By: Benjamin Franklin & John Hadley

Rapid evaporation was one of the concepts that Benjamin Franklin and John Hadley studied to improve the air conditioning systems that we have now a days. During the mid-1700, the majority of scientists were trying to explore new ideas behind air heating and cooling to enhance a complete system of heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) of building. Benjamin Franklin and John Hadley were the pioneer researchers at the time that worked on how to alter the properties of air to the best quality of conditioning. John Hardley a chemistry professor at the University of Cambridge, along with the famous Ben Franklin, they both conducted an experiment that aimed in proving the principle of evaporation as a tool in rapidly cool down an object.

This innovation definitely improved the way we design our HVAC systems in the modern buildings. It was geared towards making scientists that came afterwards design systems that are more sustainable and energy efficient.
