The Eiffel Tower is one of the most famous structures in the world. It was named after GustaaveEiffel whose team of engineers designed it following a competition for the 1889 World’s Fair (centenary of French Revolution). It cost 6.5 million francs to build, with only 1.5 million francs coming from the City.The Eiffel Tower rises to a height of 985 feet and for over forty years it was the highest structure in the world. The top may be reached by using lifts and stairs with the first platform being 189 feet, the second being 380 feet and the third at 906 feet above the ground. The structure is largely composed of triangulated sections and this allowed the engineers to build the tower so high.
Xerography, a process of producing images using electricity, was invented in 1938 by physicist-lawyer Chester Floyd "Chet" Carlson (1906–1968), and an engineering friend, Otto Kornei. The first photocopier was the Xerox 914(although large and crude) allowed operator to place original on glass, press button, and receive a plain paper copy on plain paper. The 914's success was not only due to its relative ease of use, its design (that, unlike competing copiers, carried no risk of damage to the original), and its low operating costs compared to other machines that required special paper; Haloid Xerox's decision to rent the 914—at the price of $25 per month, plus the cost of copies at four cents each with a minimum of $49 per month—made it vastly more affordable than a similar competing copier.[
