  If you have an interest in turn-of-the-century physics and science history, the is a good read. A force of nature Rutherford indeed was he and his students (including Bohr, Chadwick, Roentgen) directly had their hands in 14 Nobel prizes. An astounding body of work for the son of a simple farmer from the outlands of New Zealand.4/5(18). hearty shade of Ernest Rutherford. He imported nuclear physics from Manchester and carried on a tradition of studying the scattering of subatomic particles begun just after the turn of the century by his predecessor, J.J. Thomson. David Wilson's Rutherford is bulky, reflecting the contemporary tastes for monumental tomes. He has. Although the world of classical physics was challenged around the turn of the century by the new discoveries of radioactivity, x-rays, and special relativity, it was a familiar problem having to do with electromagnetic radiation that eventually gave rise to the potentially most revolutionary change in perspective of all - quantum theory. Letter to his mother (5 Jan). Quoted in A. S. Eve, Rutherford: Being the Life and Letters of the Rt. Hon. Lord Rutherford (), In Laurie M. Brown, Abraham Pais and A. B.

Rutherford and physics at the turn of the century (Book) Lord Rutherford by N Feather (Book) Rutherford: being the life and letters of the Rt. Hon. Lord Rutherford, O.M. by A. S Eve (Book). Rutherford and Physics at the Turn of the Century. New York: Science History Publications. pp. Ernest Rutherford and the explosion of atoms J. L. Heilbron A biography of the scientist considered to be the father of nuclear physics for his development of the nuclear theory of the atom in and discovery of alpha and beta rays and protons. Those 10 remarkable years at the turn of the century were followed by further breakthroughs that underlined the need for a new approach to physics, including Rutherford’s work on defining and splitting the atomic nucleus, American Robert Millikan’s confirmation of Einstein’s photon theory of light, and British physicist William Henry Bragg’s conclusion that X-rays must also be “corpuscular” in nature.
