THE DEVELOPMENT OF THE ATOMIC BOMB had its origins largely in the experiments carried out by the world-renowned physicist the late Lord Rutherford—New Zealand's greatest scientist —at the Cavendish Laboratory, Cambridge University. These experiments had their most dramatic point in the "splitting of the atom" in 1932, an achievement that startled the world. Lord Rutherford is pictured here with Dr. E. T." S.
