|Abstract: ||Simon Schaffer stands with an early ninteenth century air pump in Faraday’s laboratory in the Royal Institution. He explains what it does and why it was so crucial in science, an indispensable tool from Boyle’s time in experiments on air, fire and steam. Hence it was a necessary step towards the steam engine.|
