Our understanding of the organisation and behaviour of matter, and ability to manipulate matter for the benefit of humankind, is relatively recent given the age of the planet. This course is devoted to the life and times of a few individuals who made major contributions. Recognisable names include Newton, Rutherford, Curie and Einstein with a supporting cast of less well-known names such as Haber, Lewis, Meitner and Fermi. Your tutor will give an outline of their scientific contributions along with insights into their personalities and character. Unsurprisingly, some were not particularly pleasant people!
