Sairam Gudiseva 3nd period Never has a man influenced physics so profoundly as Niels Bohr in the early 1900's Going back to this time period little was known about atomic structure Bohr set out to end the obscurity of physics Howeverthings didn't come easy for Bohr He had to give up most of his life for physics and research of many hypothesis But this is why you and I have even heard of the quantum theory and atomic structures Bohr came up with his quantum theory while studying at Cambridge Bohr was a skeptic and he never truly believed in Max Planck's old quantum theory He put forth the idea that going from one high-energy orbit o a lower one an electron could in fact be trying to emit a quantum of discrete energy Bohr was criticized for this idea but he didn't let up Soon after Bohr said his famed quote If quantum mechanics hasn't shocked you you haven't understood it yet This quote is extremely famous and has gone down as the motto for quantum physicist around the world Understandably Bohr never won a Nobel prize outside of physics of which he only won one Bohr's still going strong with his theories on atomic structure he allowed for 100's of scientists to fully experiment with the cell and its many components Bohr was largely on the run from the Nazi's when he came up with this discovery which is amazing because around this time Bohr's home country of Denmark was invaded by the Nazi's Bohr and Ernest Rutherford are given credit but it is believed that Rutherford decided to desert Bohr in the middle of their work Rutherford once quite famously said that you should never bet against the wonders of science Niels Bohr's famous career never really kicked off until he was forty years old Most other major scientists were going all over the world with their ideas by their early twenties However in order to preserve the legacy of Niels Bohr he has his own institution whose goal is to make many more great strides in the field of physics for years How did Bohr affect you and me? Without Niels Bohrs' more advanced atomic theory we might as well cry over how little we know of the atoms and their compounds Physics would have never been such a force in the todays society However to this day research is still going on to improve and update the atomic theory Although scientists clearly want to improve on Bohr's theory many famous physicists come out publicly and openly say that Bohr's ideas will never be improved upon todays society cannot say goodbye to an opportunity to improve our understanding of the sciences If Bohr never had silenced his critics we would still be following Planck's theories and going on incomplete information Bohr's later life was all occupied when he decided to go back to Denmark and head the Royal Danish Academy His main goal was to the world of the of the greatness of the Danish Sciences and most likely educate a new crop of scientists for years to come There is controversy surrounding Bohr's lie during his stint in the Manhattan project Though he claimed to be anti-violence a peace-seeker Bohr engineered on the Manhattan Project Though he didn't hurt anyone directly thousands of people died Neils Bohr opened many doors for you and I in the physics world he will go down as one of the greatest physicists I love it when books have secret messages Meme
