About the Author

Danish physicist Niels Bohr (1865-1962) contributed to the understanding of atomic structure and quantum mechanics, for which he received the 1922 Nobel Prize in Physics. An integral part of the team of scientists who worked on the Manhattan Project, Bohr afterward advocated for the peaceful use of nuclear energy.
