  • Following with the discovery of the electron by J. J. Thomson at the end of the nineteenth century a steady elucidation of the structure of the atom occurred over the next 40 years culminating in the discovery of nuclear fission in 1938–1939. The significant steps after the electron discovery were: discovery of the nuclear atom by Rutherford (Philos Mag 6th Ser 21:669–688, 1911), the transformation of elements by Rutherford (Philos Mag 37:578–587, 1919), discovery of artificial radioactivity by… CONTINUE READING
