Oliver Heaviside (1850-1925), British physicist and mathematician. Heaviside realized that information travels along a cable as a wave in the space between conductors, rather than through the conductors themselves. His mathematical concepts made it possible to design long distance telephone cables. He also discovered why radio waves bend around the earth. This led to long-range radio reception.
