Interview with Sir James Chadwick in 'The Times', 29 February 1932.
© Science Museum / Science & Society Picture Library
This interview refers to the work of James Chadwick (1891-1974) on fundamental particles. In 1932 he had reinterpreted an experiment by F Joliot and I Joliot-Curie, to provide evidence of the existence of the neutron. This interview was conducted while Chadwick was still doing his own experiments to prove the existence of the neutron, and the matter was still very much in doubt.
