Even thought Scientists had suspected that we could replace outmoded Vacuum Tubes with some more advanced, low voltage technology, it was rather sudden that the Transistor was announced to have been "invented" in December of 1947 by Bell Labs, alleging a two year prior research project.
The implications: Bell Labs had more capabilities in those two years, than the combined research potential of all the Countries of the World?
NOT A SINGLE COMPANY came up with the Transistor in over 200 Years, NOT THE ADVANCED RESEARCH GROUPS of the ARMY, NOT EVEN OUR MOST PROFESSED NATIONAL LABORATORIES AND UNIVERSITIES !! Is this a classic example of a miracle device, unimagined in Human experience
