Hans Christian Ørsted was born in Rudkøbing in Southern Denmark in 1777, becoming a professor in pharmacology in 1806. H.C. Ørsted's tireless pursuit of answers led him to discover electromagnetism in 1820. His ground-breaking discovery helped pave the way for numerous technological advances, among them being electric power production.
