Atomic Nucleus

Ernest Rutherford had found out how to artificially induce a nuclear reaction in a stable element. He had discovered peculiar radiations when alphas were projected into the air and narrowed the effect down to the nitrogen, not the oxygen in the air. Nuclear reactions were Rutherford’s main focus for the rest of his scientific career.
