    As a result, the laboratory attracted high-caliber students from around the world. He read for the mathematical tripos, which at that time covered a wide range of pure mathematics as well as applications to many branches of physics. We now know that it is times less. But his greatest interest outside physics was in plants. He won a minor scholarship and in went up to the university where he would spend the rest of his life [—32].

    Thomson, J. After having a stroke, he died on November 18,in Copenhagen. The upshot was that the population of the atom had been grossly overestimated, and that n appeared to lie between two-tenths and twice the atomic weight. Probably not more than a half dozen great physicists were associated with this change. Thomson published 13 books and more than papers in his lifetime.

    Wilson, his earlier study of the ability of charged particles to promote condensation of water vapor [14; cf. Perfect prep for Niels Bohr quizzes and tests you might have in school. The discovery of the electron by Thomson, the invention of the Cloud chamber by Wilson, the discovery of artificial nuclear fission by Rutherford are examples of the extraordinary advances in experimental technique which ushered in what became known as modern physics. The following is a brief account of the background to his work and of the experiments leading to the discovery.

Except for its share of a small government grant to the Royal Society to aid all British universities and all branches of science, the Cavendish Laboratory received no other government subsidy, nor were there contributions from charitable corporations or industry.

We call such explosions radioactivity. This position, in which he remained until his death, gave him the opportunity to meet many young men whose interests lay outside the field of science.
