We almost certainly agree that the harnessing of electricity can be considered the most important technological advance of the twentieth century. The development that allows this control is the power grid, an intricate system composed of generators, substations and transformers connected by cable lines hundreds of kilometers long. Its presence is nowadays so intertwined with ours, and so much taken for granted, that we are only capable of sensing its absence, disguised as a cascading failure or… CONTINUE READING
