Spotlight on the American Inventor

Denver Planet and are excited to announce a new segment “Great Inventors in American History”


Our featured inventor this week is none other than  Mr. Walter Hunt.


Best known for the invention of the safety pin, a symbol that represents a generation of safety seekers.  Nothing says “safe space” like a therapy bear sporting a safety pin, after all.


Mr. Hunt was a very prolific inventor and is credited with other indispensable modern life gadgets like the trolly car bell, the repeating (read that “automatic”) rifle and the street sweeper.
