February 26, 1870: First pneumatic powered subway line in New York City go.aps.org/XShWYx

On this day in 1870, Alfred Ely Beach unveiled his pneumatic powered subway line to the public. It was an immediate novelty attraction and was popular for the first year or so, until a stock market crash crushed Beach's dreams for good.

February 1927: Heisenberg's Uncertainty Principle go.aps.org/1mD5xuh

Hey, atoms: Tired of your current look? Need a makeover? We have the laser pulse that can make you look like a completely different element. Pick any element, and our laser specialists will provide the pulse tailored to your special needs.
Calculations show that a carefully engineered laser pulse can induce an atom to emit light as if it were a different atom.

In the 1920s, the prevailing quantum theory modeled the atom as having electrons in fixed quantized orbits around a nucleus, and, though this model worked well for hydrogen, there were problems with larger atoms and molecules. Werner Heisenberg objected to this model and he started work on trying to come up with a quantum mechanics formulation that relied on properties that could be observed. In February 1927, he developed a key piece of quantum theory with profound implications.

In work that could help scientists better understand the formation of freezing rain, researchers explained in detail why supercooled drops of water that are triggered to rapidly freeze will then spontaneously shatter.

On this day in 1987, Ian Shelton was taking a routine telescopic photo of a small galaxy 167,000 light-years from Earth called the Large Magellanic Cloud. Upon developing the photographic plate, he realized an aging massive star that had blown apart in a supernova explosion.
