|H2O, colloquially known as water, is the only chemical compound on earth that occurs in nature in three states of aggregation: as a liquid, solid and gas. Water reaches its gaseous state through evaporation. Even though it almost invisible to the human eye, the energetic potential of water vapor is enormous. The inventors in the first century (AD) were very much aware of that fact and used the vapor in their prototype steam engines.|

Exactly 250 years ago the patent of James Watt's “separate condenser” was introduced. The invention improved steam engines and revolutionized the world. 50 years later, the ingenious inventor, James Watt, died. 2019 is therefore a special anniversary year and the right time to pay tribute to one of the greatest inventors of all time.
