#OTD #HistSci 30 August 1912 Edward Mills Purcell is born in Taylorville, Illinois. He carried out the first successful nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) experiment at Harvard and was awarded the 1952 Nobel Prize for Physics. Today, NMR spectroscopy is used by chemists to identify organic compounds and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is very widely used in diagnostic medicine. © ullstein bild/ullstein bild via Getty Image
