Transistor is 65 years old

Happy birthday, Transistor article tells that the first working version of transistor, the ubiquitous building block of all electronic circuits, was powered up 65 years ago today. The device is jointly credited to William Shockley (1910-1989), John Bardeen (1908-1991) and Walter Brattain (1902-1987), and it was Bardeen and Brattain who operated the first working point-contact transistor during an experiment conducted on 16 December 1947. The name isn’t 65, either. It wasn’t coined in 1948.
