One spring day in 1820, during a lecture, the Danish physicist Hans Christian Ørsted allowed a current from a battery to pass through a platinum wire that lay across a compass – and the compass needle moved! Ørsted had thereby demonstrated the link between electricity and magnetism.
Hans Christian Ørsted is one of Denmark’s greatest natural scientists, and this comic book is being published to mark the 200th anniversary of his discovery of electromagnetism. But Ørsted was also one of the leading cultural figures of the Danish Golden Age and lived in a dramatic time for Denmark. This is the story of his life.
With six reprints and more than 5,700 copies sold so far, »Ørsted. He electrified the world« is the best selling comic from 2020 produced by Danish authors.
The team behind »Ørsted« is now working on a new book related to the history of Physics. The comic book will see publication in Autumn 2022.
