..., several workers were investigating the recently discovered X-rays. One of these, Henri Becquerel, discovered that phosphorescent uranium salts released penetrating rays, distinct from X-rays, which were capable of exposing photographic plates ( Becquerel 1896b ). In a key, but somewhat fortuitous...

..., and temperatures of fusion’. Ultimately, of course, his model was flawed: it did not allow for internal heat generation by radioactive decay. Henri Becquerel only discovered radioactivity in around 1896. Quite independently from his thermogeological endeavours, William Thomson (1852) was the first person...

..., 1895, William Röntgen discovered X-rays and the following year Henri Becquerel detected similar rays being emitted from uranium. The decade of discovery that ensued was a time unparalleled in the history of science ( Lewis 2001 ). The speed at which new discoveries were made about the atom unravelled...
