The development of the Atomic bomb is the most impressive scientific development in history. The development of the bomb began with scientists working on independent projects, which climaxed with the Manhattan Project, and merged full strength with the testing at Trinity. The background and history of the science that lead up to the Manhattan Project is important because it incorporates many ideas from prior decades. The Manhattan Project is the largest demonstration of the scientific community coming together ever. Hundreds and thousands of people and communities came together for one common goal, to end World War II.
He lived and worked on his family’s dairy farm. It was in the countryside of Yale, Michigan. Bud was in college when the Vietnam War was taking place and because of the fact he did not want to be drafted he was motivated to stay in school. Buds first job besides working on his family’s dairy farm was working at a gas station. He was paid 90 cents an hour pumping gas.
His impact stretches far beyond the reaches of physics and life in the early 1900's. This physicist of phenomenal philosophy, logic, and imagination has been and still is the subject of countless catch phrases and expressions of intelligence. Albert Einstein is a forerunner of influential American icons. Because of his contribution to American science and society as an immigrant, intellectual accomplishments, and discoveries in nuclear technology, it is my belief that Albert Einstein was the most influential person of the twentieth century. First of all, Albert Einstein was the most important figure of the twentieth century because of his contribution to American science and society as an immigrant.
(Benjamin Franklin’s Autobiography 1) Growing up in a family with little money, not enough for school, Franklin was sent to be an apprentice for his brother’s printing press. (Ben Franklin The Electric Franklin 1) He worked in his brother’s shop for four years, mastering his skill at type-writing and contributing articles that were popular to The New-England Courant. (Benjamin Franklin 1) These articles were anonymously sent because of Franklin’s fear of his brother’s opinion of the ... ... middle of paper ... ...etire younger, and accomplish other interests. Franklin was a very sacrificial man, always wanting to help others. His list of inventions is numerous, all benefitting early Americans and people around the world today.
At the age of ten he received his first science book. Inspired by the book he tried to create different sorts of experiments, for an example a miniature cannon that did not become successful but was a work of his imagination. At the age of sixteen, Ernest received a scholarship to attend Nelson College, there he did above all others and still had time to become the captain of the rugby team. He later attended the Canterbury College where he further improved his mathematical and arithmetical skills. Through excellent work in Canterbury College, Ernest won a national scholarship to the University of New Zealand.
Julius Robert Oppenheimer is the most prominent person of the twentieth century. His creation of the Center of Theoretical Physics at Berkeley led to a new wave of theoretical physics students which has changed modern science forever. His leadership of the Manhattan Project led them to create the atomic bomb in time to end the war and save hundreds of thousands of lives that would be lost in a land invasion of Imperial Japan. His following outspoken opposition of continued use of atomic devices broadcasted a new wave of public opinion that has had long-lasting effects.
The Scientist That Overcame the World Albert Einstein was a world renowned scientist that may be considered one of history’s greatest scientist with his creation of the Theory of Relativity or, E=MC^2. He was born in Ulm, Wurttemberg, Germany on March 14, 1897. His father’s name was Hermann Einstein and his mother’s name was Pauline Einstein. (Hasday) Though despite his outstanding success he had very many problems throughout his life that he had to struggle greatly to overcome. Albert Einstein overcame failure by pursuing his intellectual dreams, working hard to make a life for himself, and achieving the nobel prize in physics.
In the first years of school, his parents were very concerned that Albert might have what we called today a “learning disability”; he only showed achievement in the subject of math and science, but did not have a care in the world for any other of the subjects that were taught in elementary school. Besides school, Albert had a liking for the violin and piano during his pre-adolescent years. “Music was the key that helped Albert Einstein become one of the smartest men who has ever lived. Einstein himself says that the reason he was so smart is because he played the violin” (Laurence O'Donnell III) As time passed by, he favored teaching himself; by the time that he was a teen-age boy he had superior knowledge of math and science than his peers. His family then decides to move from Germany to Italy, but Albert decided to stay.
Introduction A highly recognized character in the areas of chemistry was Ernest Rutherford. His distinctive ideas created discoveries and theories that made him famous, up to a point that he's even being considered the father of nuclear physics, not an everyday title. Nowadays we know of certain types of rays thanks to Edward, even though he basically named them. A sturdy example would be the gamma rays, that are used in therapeutic machines. Ernest basically implanted a seed in science which later developed into massive discoveries.
Author Liz Sonneborn writes in her article “Edison Invents the Light Bulb,” that Edison himself claimed he could finish this invention within a few days. In October of 1878 Edison released his first light bulb, a thin filament of platinum inside a small glass globe. Although this left people in awe, some people were also disappointed, because the bulb only could burn for one hour (Sonneborn). Edison admitted that he had trouble, but he refused to ever give up. He continued to work hard everyday, until he came up with the perfect product.
