[edit] The Power of the Propeller

Josef Ressel, looking at a corkscrew, had an idea of momentous proportions. A new way to pull a ship through water instead of the cumbersome paddlewheel. He invented the modern propeller in 1829, but why haven't we heard more about him since his invention affected all modern travel?
