I also never heard about it before. This is what I found.

For 715 years, from 1278 to 1993, Andorrans lived under a unique co-principality, ruled by French and Spanish leaders (from 1607 onward, the French chief of state and the Spanish bishop of Urgel). In 1993, this feudal system was modified with the titular heads of state retained, but the government transformed into a parliamentary democracy. Long isolated and impoverished, mountainous Andorra achieved considerable prosperity since World War II through its tourist industry. Many immigrants (legal and illegal) are attracted to the thriving economy with its lack of income taxes.

Correct :!: His name is Tutankhamen. He became a pharaoh when he was 9. Unfortunatetly, he died so early only when he was 18 because of illness.

Alexander Graham Bell invented television in 1876, didn't he? (The year is easy to remember). But I also heard that the first inventor who invented television set was another one. I'm not sure yet. Anyway, I don't know what it was called. :roll:

So what about my information about Alexander Graham Bell invented television in 1876? In your article, it says 'Paul Nipkow proposed and patented the world's first electromechanical television system in 1884' and 'only after 1907, the Nipkow Disc would become practical'. I just wonder about the years. If the figures are all correct, Alexander Graham Bell must be the first one who invented television. What do you think? :roll:

That was telephone what bell invented on 1876 not machine that can show picture. I think that Paul Nipkow is right.

I really don't know. But if I were asked who invented television set again, I would answer Graham Bell. :mrgreen: There are still many unclear things relating to science. Many scientists had the same ideas at the same time but only one's invention is famous.
