It would be hard to overstate the sense of scientific wonder that has infected Jacksonville almost from the first days of its founding, nor the profound ways that the world has been changed by the men and women of Science from Jacksonville.
Personal Computing, the concept of Black Holes and the spread of theories that Einstein described as "spooky action at a distance', and even early attempts in the race to manmade flight by one of Jville's most astounding female citizens.
Although there are many scientist from Jacksonville that deserve our attention in this piece we are focusing on three. An astronomer, publisher and multiple patent holder. A computer scientist known as the father of personal computing and open source code. And, an astronomer who coined the term "black hole" and introduced the concept of "S-Matrix".
