He Bore Down On The Atom

Maybe the titled should have read "He Bohr Down on the Atom". :)

[insert groan here]

I'm not sure what was the impetus for this article, but it gives an account of Niels Bohr's life and accomplishments. I can't vouch for the accuracy of it, and you can certainly find a more detailed biography of Bohr in many other books. Still, if you no knowing about Bohr and can't tell the difference between him and a "bore", then this might be a good place to start.

Edit: I should have pointed this out in the first place. Since we are talking about Bohr, his life story, and his accomplishments, I would like to point out that the AIP has a very good website on the Niels Bohr Library and Archives. This should supplement what you read in that news article.
