        How they 'split the atom' and brought the news to the world An event to mark the 80th anniversary of Ernest Walton's (left) and John Cockcroft's 'splitting the atom. He was the first man to split the atom Cockcroft, John Richard [] In [Q1] , he married Martha Needham [] in Todmorden. Children: Willie. This is discussed in the book Halifax Murders. Cockcroft, Thomas [] Born in Todmorden. He was landlord of the Royal Oak.

      John Dalton gave us the first picture of the atom in the early s. Almost years later came one of the most important experiments in scientific history, by the young misfit New Zealander, Ernest Rutherford. He showed the atom consisted mostly of space, and in doing so turned years of classical physics on its head. Cockcroft was born in Todmorden, Yorkshire, the son of a mill owner. After studying electrical engineering and physics at Manchester University and at Cambridge he became, in , a Fellow of St. John's College, Cambridge and worked in the Cavendish Laboratory with Ernest Rutherford.

      found: Wikipedia, Novem (John Cockcroft; Sir John Douglas Cockcroft, OM, KCB, CBE, FRS (27 May - 18 September ) was a British physicist who shared the Nobel Prize in Physics in for splitting the atomic nucleus with Ernest Walton, and was instrumental in the development of nuclear power; born Todmorden (England); died Cambridge (England); studied electrical engineering. Cockcroft and Walton used this to perform the first artificial disintegration of an atomic nucleus, a feat popularly known as splitting the atom. During the Second World War Cockcroft became Assistant Director of Scientific Research in the Ministry of Supply, working on radar.

Ernest Rutherford, 1st Baron Rutherford of Nelson OM PC FRS (30 August – 19 October ), was a nuclear physicist from New Zealand. He was known as the "father" of nuclear physics, he pioneered the orbital theory of the atom, in his discovery of Rutherford scattering off the nucleus with the gold foil experiment.
