Centred on the inter-war years - within the ivy clad walls of Cambridge University's famed Cavendish Laboratory, amid the windswept valleys of north Wales, and in the industrial heartland of Birmingham - The Basis of Everything is the story of the coming of the atomic bomb, and how the unlikely union of two scientists - Ernest Rutherford, the. Entrance to Cavendish Laboratory, showing extension in the distance. The American Institute of Physics, a (c)(3) not-for-profit corporation, advances, promotes and serves the physical sciences for the benefit of humanity.

Espionage Nucleus is Rory Clements second book in the Tom Wilde series and it is an enthralling, high tension spy thriller that merges many of the political events at play in Europe at the dawn of the Second World War. Tom Wilde, Cambridge University professor, finds himself in the middle of a deadly game of espionage that could see the victor deliver the atom bomb/5(). The Library is open to staff and students in the Department of Physics and other members of the University of Cambridge who are entitled to borrow books. It is generally staffed Monday - Friday 9am - 5pm but is open 24 hours to those with access to the Cavendish Laboratory.

Henry Cavendish FRS (/ ˈ k æ v ən d ɪ ʃ /; 10 October – 24 February ) was an English natural philosopher, scientist, and an important experimental and theoretical chemist and is noted for his discovery of hydrogen, which he termed "inflammable air". He described the density of inflammable air, which formed water on combustion, in a paper, On Factitious : Copley medal. Other articles where Cavendish Laboratory is discussed: J.J. Thomson: Discovery of the electron: head of the highly successful Cavendish Laboratory. (It was there that he met Rose Elizabeth Paget, whom he married in ) He not only administered the research projects but also financed two additions to the laboratory buildings primarily from students’ fees, with little support from the.

The Cavendish Laboratory has an extraordinary history of discovery and innovation in Physics since its opening in under the direction of James Clerk Maxwell, the University's first Cavendish Professor of Experimental Physics.

Up till that time, physics meant theoretical physics and was regarded as the province of the mathematicians. Second, we went through Malcolm Longair’s Maxwell’s Enduring Legacy: a Scientific History of the Cavendish Laboratory  (CUP ) and made sure all the images in that book up to the mid were included.

The first and second releases include images, black and white and 39 in colour. The door to the old Cavendish lab, with inscription. Over the main entrance of the Cavendish Laboratory, the home of the Department of Physics in the University of Cambridge, is an inscription: ‘The works of the Lord are great; sought out of all them that have pleasure therein’.This use of a Bible passage in architecture is somewhat unusual for a university physics laboratory that was.
