    Hedy LaMarr, Austrian-born American film actress, 1914 - 2000.

    Mention her name to people, and they remember her as a film star from the 1930's - 1950's. What's not commonly known is that she was a brilliant mathematician whose work in spread-spectrum frequency-hopping technology was the basis of torpedo guidance systems, GPS, Bluetooth, and WiFi.

    This is a quagga, a sub-species of zebra, which became extinct in 1883. The photo is of the last known one to have existed.

    Various TV shows & movies have referenced this--eitehr directly or by having a character loosely based on her...

    Remember the 70's, when an esoteric audio system could be the centerpiece of your living room?
