Did you know?  Oxygen was discovered independently by Carl Wilhelm Scheele, in Uppsala, Sweden in 1773 or earlier, and Joseph Priestley in Wiltshire, England in 1774, but Priestley is often given priority because his work was published first. Priestly fled to America in 1793 to escape political persecution. The Joseph Priestley museum is in my hometown Northumberland, Pennsylvania USA…I’ve never been there.
