The first functional steam engine - a machine that converts the energy of steam into motion - was designed by an English inventor Thomas Newcomen. However, the invention needed further development, which was driven by mining. At that time, many lost their lives in flooded mines. Thomas Savery was the first one to realise that a steam engine could be employed to pump water out of the flooded areas.
