Joseph John Thomson

English physicist who discovered the electron, Nobel Prize winner
The electron: may it never be of any use to anybody!More Joseph John Thomson quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
If, in the very intense electric field in the neighbourhood of the cathode, the molecules of the gas are dissociated and are split up, not into the ordinary chemical atoms, but into these primordial atoms, which we shall for brevity call corpuscles; and if these corpuscles are charged with electricity and projected from the cathode by the electric field, they would behave exactly like the cathode rays.More Joseph John Thomson quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The discovery of electrical waves... has had a profound influence on civilization; it has been instrumental in providing the methods which may bring all inhabitants of the world within hearing distance of each other and has potentialities social, educational and political which we are only beginning to realize.More Joseph John Thomson quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
A scientific theory is a tool and not a creed.More Joseph John Thomson quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
As we conquer peak after peak we see in front of us regions full of interest and beauty, but we do not see our goal, we do not see the horizon; in the distance tower still higher peaks, which will yield to those who ascend them still wider prospects, and deepen the feeling, the truth of which is emphasized by every advance in science, that 'Great are the Works of the Lord'.More Joseph John Thomson quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
