Father of nuclear physics, Ernest Rutherford is considered as one of the most illustrious scientists of all time. His concept of radioactive half-life was the result of his initial work. He was awarded the ‘Nobel Prize in Chemistry’ for his surveys into the disintegration of the elements and the chemistry of radioactive substances. During his time at the University of Manchester during the 1900s, he along with Thomas Royds, proved that Alpha radiation is helium nuclei. Even though he could not prove whether it was positive or negative, he concluded that all the atoms have their charge concentrated in nucleus. This theory was one of his famous works and founded the Rutherford Model of the atom. He was awarded the ‘Nobel Prize in Chemistry’ for his surveys into the disintegration of the elements and the chemistry of radioactive substance. This great experimentalist also propounded many modern-day science theories. As a great scientist, he wrote several notes, articles, and delivered lectures on different subjects and issues. We have curated Rutherford’s quotes and sayings from his work and life. Here is a collecltion of his quotes and thoughts below.
