 The first message radio message sent internationally was “Greetings from France to England through the ether.” [(http://​news.bbc.co.uk/​1/​hi/​entertainment/​304466.stm)] The tour guide mentioned that these days people do not use the word “ether” any more, people prefer the word “airwave”. I believe the word “ether” might have deeper meaning. Michelson-Morley Experiment was performed in 1887 [(https://​en.wikipedia.org/​wiki/​Michelson%E2%80%93Morley_experiment)]. Special Relativity was formulated by Einstein in 1905 [(https://​en.wikipedia.org/​wiki/​Special_relativity)]. Therefore, it might be plausible that Marconi believed light travelled through aether.  ​ The first message radio message sent internationally was “Greetings from France to England through the ether.” [(http://​news.bbc.co.uk/​1/​hi/​entertainment/​304466.stm)] The tour guide mentioned that these days people do not use the word “ether” any more, people prefer the word “airwave”.

 You literally can receive mobile phone signal from France on top of the white cliff. By that I meant your mobile phone can successfully perform a handshake with the cell tower in France. It is rather fitting that everyone can re-enact the amazing feat once performed by Marconi and his assistant, at the same site where it was once performed. Although for a lot of people, whether they want their phone to connect to a French cell tower is outside of their control. In other word, all these amazing re-enactments are performed involuntarily. Personally, I kind of want to visit Wimereux to have at look at what Marconi saw.  You literally can receive mobile phone signal from France on top of the white cliff.
