Don’t worry though - virtually every famous invention you can name IS in here. Also, some inventions have multiple inventors and dates e.g. the internal combustion engine and the lightbulb both have multiple inventors and dates and were designed over many years… Not even experts on different websites can agree. In certain cases, I have made a judgement as to who and when and you are entitled to disagree in places! Rest assured though, I diligently researched each and every invention as best as I could.
