Something to do with the photoelectric effect? And if so, photovoltaic cells?

Ding! Yep. The photoelectric effect. It had been known since around 1880 ish that light could cause an electrical charge, but it wasn't known how, until Einstein postulated that light traveled as a particle and then provided a formula for the effect. It was tested in 1916 ish and he was right! But the Nobel wasn't given till 1922 mainly due to politics within the Nobel committee. The committee snubbed Einstein for as long as they could, and then awarded the Nobel in '22 along side Bohr.

Your turn, Two Dogs.

Two people have been the lead singer of The Little River Band. One was Glenn Shorrock. Who was the other?

Make that prior to 1996, when Glen Shorrock left, again. Apparently the band still exists, but with none of the original members.

Correct!

I thought the 1983 album "The Net" album was quite good.
