Caption

Ernest Walton (1903-1995). Historical portrait of the Irish physicist Ernest Thomas Sinton Walton boating with a friend. Walton worked under the famous physicist Ernest Rutherford. Together with John Cockcroft, Walton experimented with accelerating particles. They caused the first artificial nuclear disintegration by bombarding lithium with accelerated protons and shared the 1952 Nobel Prize for Physics for this work. This was the first successful use of a particle accelerator. The results would verify Einstein's famous theory of mass-energy equivalence (E=mc2). Photographed in Cambridge, UK.
