Why not ?

History of the JFI | James Franck Institute

It might interest you that when we made the experiments that we did not read the literature well enough—and you know how that happens.

On the other hand, one would think that other people would have told us about it.

For instance, we had a colloquium at the time in Berlin at which all the important papers were discussed.

Nobody discussed Bohr’s paper.

Why not ?

The reason is that fifty years ago one was so convinced that nobody would, with the state of knowledge we had at that time, understand spectral line emission, so that if somebody published a paper about it, one assumed “probably it is not right.

So we did not know it. — James Franck

James Franck | American Institute of Physics

James Franck was a German physicist who won the 1925 Nobel Prize for Physics with Gustav Hertz “for their discovery of the laws governing the impact of an electron upon an atom”.

Niels Bohr’s Flight From the Nazis Was a Science Drama

And I would like to say that when we got the Nobel prize together, I was only pleased, because he had contributed so much and he was so much more able with experiments than I am, that we really supplemented each other quite well.

Habit of Attention

Robert Millikan, US physicist - Stock Image - C026/4094 - Science ...

The fact that Science walks forward on two feet, namely theory and experiment,

Sometimes it is one foot that is put forward first, sometimes the other, but continuous progress is only made by the use of both-by theorizing and then testing, or by finding new relations in the process of experimenting and then bringing the theoretical foot up and pushing it on beyond, and so on in unending alterations. – Robert Andrews Millikan

Cultivate the ” Habit of Attention ” and try to gain opportunities to hear wise men and women talk.

Indifference and inattention are the two most dangerous monsters that you ever meet.

Interest and attention will insure to you an education. — Robert Andrews Millikan

Robert Andrews Millikan

The Nobel Prize in Physics 1923 was awarded to Robert Andrews Millikan (1868-1953) “for his work on the elementary charge of electricity and on the photoelectric effect.”

” Atom’s Way of Looking “

Science Source - Niels Bohr, Danish Physicist

“The opposite of a correct statement is a false statement. But the opposite of a profound truth may well be another profound truth.”
― Niels Bohr

Young Niels Bohr

“Everything we call real is made of things that cannot be regarded as real.”
― niels bohr

“Every great and deep difficulty bears in itself it’s own solution. It forces us to change our thinking in order to find it.”
― Niels Bohr

“A physicist is just an ” Atom’s Way of Looking ” at itself.”
― Niels Bohr

The Nobel Prize in Physics 1922 was awarded to Niels Henrik David Bohr “for his services in the investigation of the structure of atoms and of the radiation emanating from them.”

Niels Bohr is one of the major voices in the early development of quantum mechanics.

Bohr & Einstein Debates

Bohr & Einstein prolonged and spirited debate, the two great thinkers helped refine a century-long understanding of quantum physics.

Einstein’s famous quote that “God does not play dice with the universe,” to which Bohr is said to have replied, “Einstein, stop telling God what to do!” The debate was cordial, if spirited.

In a 1920 letter, Einstein said to Bohr, “Not often in life has a human being caused me such joy by his mere presence as you did.”

” Matrix of all Matter “

Whence come I and whither go I? That is the great unfathomable question, the same for every one of us. Science has no answer to it. ― Max Planck

Science cannot solve the ultimate mystery of nature. And that is because, in the last analysis, we ourselves are a part of the mystery that we are trying to solve. ― Max Planck

“Experiment is the only means of knowledge at our disposal. Everything else is poetry, imagination.”
― Max Planck

All matter originates and exists only by virtue of a force… We must assume behind this force the existence of a conscious and intelligent Mind. This Mind is the ” Matrix of all Matter “. ― Max Planck

Max Karl Ernst Ludwig Planck, (German: [ 23 April 1858 – 4 October 1947) was a German theoretical physicist whose discovery of energy quanta won him the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1918.

Dwellers of Small Earth

The Nobel Prize is without doubt the highest honour, the most coveted honour, which can be bestowed on a scientist.

(Charles Glover Barkla said)

Plaque to commemorate the Nobel Prize physicist and former Chair in Natural Philosophy at the University of Edinburgh – Charles Glover Barkla – has been unveiled at the Hermitage House. Charles Barkla lived in Hermitage House, from 1922 to 1938′

We are all dwellers on this one small earth; we live one life, die one death; we have the same difficulties to contend with; we ought in common to fight the foes of ignorance and wrong.

Charles Glover Barkla

When X-rays traverse matter of any kind, this matter becomes a source of a radiation similar in character to that of the primary radiation falling upon it.

Charles Glover Barklab ( 1877 – 1944 ) was a British physicist, 

In 1917, Glover Barkla won the Nobel Prize for discovering that the X-ray spectrum of an element is its characteristic property. He also won the Hughes medal for his work in the same field.

Glover Barkla received several honors and awards in his life. He was made a fellow of the Royal Society of London in 1912. Two years later, he became a fellow of the Royal Society of Edinburgh.

” Universe of Light “

“From religion comes a man’s purpose; ……. from science, his power to achieve it.

Sometimes people ask if religion and science are not opposed to one another.

They are: in the sense that the thumb and fingers of my hands are opposed to one another.

It is an opposition by means of which anything can be grasped.”
― Sir William Henry Bragg

Sound … cannot travel across what we call a vacuum. … Light and our eyes that see it deal with the doings of the whole universe; sound belongs to the world only.

I may talk of the ” Universe of Light ” , but I can only talk of the world of sound.

“Light brings us the news of the Universe.”
 William Henry Bragg

Sir William Henry Bragg was a British scientist who shared the 1915 Nobel Prize in Physics with his son, William Lawrence Bragg for their services in the analysis of crystal structure by means of X-rays”. 

The Nobel Prize in Physics 1915 was awarded jointly to Sir William Henry Bragg and William Lawrence Bragg “for their services in the analysis of crystal structure by means of X-rays.”

It is a unique Nobel honor shared by a father and son . The mineral Braggite is named after him and his son.

Zero Energy

” Thumb Rule of Cosmos is Zero Energy ” .

Love all.

(c) ram H singhal

Lord Vishnu is floating on water which is Zero Calorie .

Indian Mythology is just not Spiritual but Advance Scientific Facts put into Visual Language .

Vishnu meaning is Universal consciousness which is floating on Zero , now many Scientist believe our Universe also has a Consciousness like us .

Energy Equation of Atom is Zero so is of Entire Cosmos.
