He lived there and attended school until 1889 when he was awarded an academic scholarship to the University of New Zealand at Wellington. While there he attended the Canterbury College branch to study mathematics and physical science. He double majored in these two subjects and received a Bachelor of Arts and Master of Arts in 1893. The following year, he acquired a Bachelor of Science degree while doing research on the ability of high-frequency electrical discharge to magnetize iron. Shortly after this, he fell in love with Mary Newton.
Rutherford and Planicks theory needed help with their theory and description so Niels Bohr helped explained what happened inside of the atom and developed a picture of atomic structure. In result of his work, he earned a Nobel peace prize in 1922. During these years of studying under Rutherford and working, he also married the love of his life, Margaret Norland. They had six sons. Four survived to adult hood, and one, Aage, would soon be known as a physics scientist well as his father.
In 1898, Marie Curie (Polish physicist) and Pierre Curie (French physicist) were one of the first scientists to isolate radium and polonium from pitchblende (uraninite). Henri Becquerel received a Nobel Prize for his work, finding radioactivity in uranium. Wilhelm Konrad Rontgen also received a Nobel Prize for discovering the X-ray. These breakthroughs aforementioned were why he turned his attention to radioactivity. His ability to work creatively, not only by himself, but also with other associates, whom most were already established in the field of science.
Because of his father’s success, this is what inspired him to work harder and find solutions to physics and atomic theory. Heisenberg attended a school in Munich until the year 1920. He went to school to study physics, later on got his Ph.D., and then got a job as an assistant for Max Born. In 1941, he was given professor of physics at the University of Berlin. When Heisenberg was only 23 years old, he discovered
Rutherford's Gold Foil Experiment Rutherford started his scientific career with much success in local schools leading to a scholarship to Nelson College. After achieving more academic honors at Nelson College, Rutherford moved on to Cambridge University's Cavendish laboratory. There he was lead by his mentor J.J. Thomson convinced him to study radiation. By 1889 Rutherford was ready to earn a living and sought a job. With Thomson's recommendation McGill University in Montreal accepted him as a professor of chemistry.
James Thomson was the professor of engineering in Belfast and later was appointed to the chair of mathematics at the University of Glasgow. He taught his son mathematics at a very early age and as a result, William Thomson became an accomplished mathematican beyond that of universities. William Thomson enterd Glasgow University at the age of ten. That was not as uncommon as it is today because back then the universities were competing for the best junior pupils. In 1838, when Thomson was 14, he began what people today would consider university work and when he was 15, his essay called An Essay on the Figure of the Earth won him a gold medal from the University of Glasgow.
Niels Bohr was a major contributor to modern physics. He won a Nobel Prize for his work on the atomic model. Also he came up with a way to furthermore define what a nucleus looks like, and also worked on the Quantum theory. He accomplished all of this while living in Copenhagen, Denmark and being a Jewish Chemist during World War II. Post-war he became a major contributor to his Open-World theory of helping Nations intelligence between each other about weapons of mass destruction.
Bohr and his family grew up in an atmosphere that helped the development of his knowledge. His father was largely responsible for awakening his interest in physics while, his mother came from a family well known in the field of education. After Gammelholm Grammar School in 1903, he entered Copenhagen University where He won a gold medal from the Royal Danish Academy of Sciences for his theoretical analysis of vibrations of water jets as a means of determining surface tension. He received his Master's degree from the University of Copenhagen in 1909 and his doctorate in 1911 with a thesis Studies on the electron theory of metals. Bohr went to England to study with Sir J.J. Thomson at Cambridge.

This declaration affirmed their confidence in the scientific integrity of the Holy Scriptures. The list included 86 Fellows of the Royal Society. '9 James Joule was among the more prominent of the scientists who signed the document. From 1872 onwards, Joule's health deteriorated and he did little further work.
Ernest basically implanted a seed in science which later developed into massive discoveries. Biography Ernest Rutherford was once born in Nelson, New Zealand. It was a 30 of August, of 1871 when this genius was brought to the world. He was the second son out of seven kids James and Martha gave life to. His mother was a teacher, and his father a wheelwright.
