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

During the mid-1700s, the many scientists were trying to explore new ideas of air heating and cooling to create a complete system of heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) of building.

John Hadley, a chemistry professor at the University of Cambridge, along with the famous Ben Franklin,  conducted an experiment that aimed in proving the principle of evaporation as a tool to 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.
