Charles Édouard Guillaume
Charles-Edouard Guillaume
Colleague of Kristian Birkeland whose multitude of honors included the Croix de l'Ordere de St-Olaf de Norvége. Guillaime spent his distinguished career at the Observatoire de Paris—Section de Meudon where he became reknowned for his thermo measurements. Guillaume was the first to determine the correct temperature of space.

Oscar Buneman
Oscar Buneman
In 1940 upon completion of his PhD with Douglas Hartree,[1] Buneman joined Hartree's magnetron research group assisting the development of radar during World War II. They discovered the Buneman–Hartree criterion for the voltage threshold of a magnetron operation. After the war, Buneman developed theories and simulations of collision-less dissipation of...
