Balfour Stewart (1828 -1887) was a Scottish physicist who saw no conflict between the facts of science and the fundamentals of Christianity, expressing this conviction in a number of popular writings. He is best known for his work on the magnetic field, especially the upper atmosphere electrical currents, which led to the discovery of the ionosphere.
