Happy Birthday James Chadwick!

Happy Birthday James Chadwick! He won the Nobel Prize in Physics 1935 "for the discovery of the neutron" in 1932... without his discovery these amazing research in many areas of science and technology with neutrons would have not been possible for the past 80 years!

A great writeup about the discovery of the neutron by ANS, posted it here last year but it is worth repeating: 
The full original paper by Chadwick in 1932 is available here and the full pdf also from Proc. Roy. Soc. website:
