John Tyndall

INVENTOR, PHILOSOPHER

With his family only able to afford a hedge-school education, Leighlinbridge born John Tyndall did not enter university until he was in his mid thirties, but despite this obvious disadvantage, went on to become one of the most significant scientists of the 19th century. A founding father of the science of ‘nephelometry’, one of Tydall’s greatest contributions was the explanation as to why the sky is blue, a phenomenon that is now known as the ‘Tyndall Effect’, whilst the specific blue colour of the sky is also called ‘Tyndall Blue’.
