Robert Bunsen and His 200th Birthday

Robert Bunsen invented the Bunsen burner. That’s about all I know about the guy. He’s dead. Today is his 200th birthday and Google is celebrating that fact with a Google Doodle.

Robert Bunsen was an important scientist. Before Bunsen, scientists were forced to warm test tubes by rubbing them up with their hands. That is all.
