  • We present in this paper a chronological study on the main line of the electromagnetic radiation throughout the history of mankind. This history is divided into three distinct eras: pre-classical, classical, and modern era. In pre-classical era, myths are studied starting with Hyperion (god of lightning), extramission theory, and Euclid principles. While in the classical era, the main focus is on classical theories of physics through introducing the Maxwell equations and Huygens and Newton’s… CONTINUE READING
