Thomas Edison is hands-down one of the greatest inventors in history. He also had a love of chemistry that banished him to the basement as a kid. In this episode, we go behind the scenes at the Thomas Edison National Historical Park to see how Edison's love of chemistry fueled his world-changing inventions. Edison Park is an amazing complex home to more than 400,000 artifacts (which we definitely weren't allowed to touch) and is considered the template for modern labs everywhere.
