Splitting of the Atom - apparatus used by Dr J D Cockcroft

Dr John D Cockcroft listening for sounds indicating atomic disintegration brought about by the bombardment with high-velocity protons of the lithium nucleus, which appears to break up into two helium nuclei. Physicists Cockcroft and E T S Walton developed the Cockcroft-Walton accelerator to artificially accelerate atomic particles to high energies, to enable them to observe the results of splitting the atom. At the Cavendish Laboratory, Cambridge.
1932

Dr Ernest Walton with Cockcroft-Walton apparatus

Dr Ernest T S Walton in the cabinet (marked E) into which the high-velocity protons emerge and strike the target of lithium, producing on a fluorescent screen bright scintillations which indicate that helum particles are being driven out of the lithium nucleus - the lithium nucleus appearing to break up into two helium nuclei. Physicists Walton and J D Cockcroft developed the Cockcroft-Walton accelerator in the Cavendish Laboratory at Cambridge University to artificially accelerate atomic particles to high energies. They observed the resultant splitting of atoms when protons from hydrogen were fired at high speeds at a lithium target.

Two UFOs, Hessdalen, Norway Featured Print

Two UFOs, Hessdalen, Norway

A rare photo of two UFOs together. Interestingly, they are very similar in shape and colour -- possibly they are an example of a UFO splitting into two. Mysterious lights appear regularly over Hessdalen, Norway, and have never been explained.
