Undoubtedly, the word came first and the explanation followed. British physicist Ernest Rutherford was the son of a man who fixed wheels on horse-drawn carriages, and he became the most prominent experimental physicist of his era.

He was at the forefront of early studies of radioactivity, humanity's increasing understanding of the atom, and the dawn of nuclear : His initial research interest in the life of Rutherford is palpable, as the same echoes through many of his writings – from “Radioactivity in America” to his editing of “Rutherford and Boltwood: Letters on Radioactivity”.

A champion and forerunner in the field of physical science history, Badash has certainly left his mark in Academia. It led to his editing two valuable reference works, Rutherford and Boltwood: Letters on Radioactivity (Yale University Press, ) and Rutherford Correspondence Catalog (American Institute of Physics, ), and to writing Kapitza, Rutherford, and the Kremlin (Yale University Press, ), which recounted how Rutherford tried to support his Author: Zuoyue Wang.

Ernest Rutherford was born on Aug. 30,in Spring Grove (Brightwater), near Nelson, New Zealand. His father, a Scot, was a wheelwright, farmer, timberman, and large-scale flax producer. Rutherford attended Nelson College, a secondary school (), and then studied at Canterbury College in Christchurch, receiving his bachelor's degree.

Ernest Rutherford and Frederick Soddy jointly had continued their work on radioactive materials and concluded that radioactivity was due to a spontaneous transmutation of atomic elements.

In radioactive decay, an element breaks down into another, lighter element, releasing alpha, beta, or gamma radiation in the process. They also determined that a particular isotope of a radioactive element.

Book Review: The Gospel and Letters of John. By Urban C. von Wahlde. By far the most famous quote from Ernest Rutherford is that “all science is either physics or stamp collecting.” It is generally taken to mean (especially by physicists) that Rutherford felt that physics is superior to chemistry and geology and biology and that those other “lesser” sciences are just stamp collecting.

This is particularly delicious to self-important. THIS important book, written by so close an asso-ciate of Rutherford as was the author, will be read upon the embryo of that special field-radioactivity-which was to form the main part of Rutherford's life work.
