Google doodles Celebrates Niels Bohr`s 127th birthday today

Google celebrates Niels Henrik David Bohr 127th birthday with a atom doodle today.

The Google doodle showcases Bohr atomic theory published in 1913. The theory, which became a basis for quantum theory, showed the atom as one with a small nucleus surrounded by electrons that travel in circular orbits.

Bohr also introduced the idea that an electron could drop from a higher-energy orbit to a lower one, in the process emitting a photon of discrete energy.

About Niels Henrik David Bohr

He was born on October 7, 1885 in Copenhagen in Denmark, and died in November 18, 1962 in Denmark Copenhagen. He were educated at Trinity College, Cambridge, University of Copenhagen and the University of Cambridge.

Niels Henrik David Bohr made foundational contributions to understanding atomic structure and quantum mechanics, for which he received the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1922.

Niels Bohr Quotes:

Prediction is very difficult, especially if it’s about the future.

Your theory is crazy, but it’s not crazy enough to be true.
It is wrong to think that the task of physics is to find out how Nature is. Physics concerns what we say about Nature.
A physicist is just an atom’s way of looking at itself.
If quantum mechanics hasn’t profoundly shocked you, you haven’t understood it yet.
Everything we call real is made of things that cannot be regarded as real.
An expert is someone who knows some of the worst mistakes, which can be made, in a very narrow field.
If anybody says he can think about quantum physics without getting giddy, that only shows he has not understood the first thing about them.
