"The father of nuclear energy," Ernest Rutherford was one of the greatest physicists of all time. He was the primary founder of nuclear physics. His list of accomplishments and contributions to his field is nearly endless. His greatest contribution to science was with his nuclear theory of the atom.
Ernest Rutherford was born on August 30, 1871 in Spring Grove, New Zealand. He was the forth of twelve children of his wheelwright father, James and mother, Martha Rutherford. In 1887 Ernest won a scholarship to Nelson College, a secondary school; A scholarship here allowed him to enroll in Canterbury College. Graduating with a B.A. in 1892 and a M.A. in 1893, he stayed for a fifth year to do research in physics. In this fifth year Rutherford found that electromagnetic waves could be detected even after they had passed through brick walls. This caused him to be awarded with a scholarship, which provided further education at Cambridge.
