A tanka written by Lee Sonogan
It was quite the most incredible event that has ever happened to me in my life. It was almost as incredible as if you fired a 15-inch shell at a piece of tissue paper and it came back and hit you.
[Recalling in 1936 the discovery of the nucleus in 1909, when some alpha particles were observed instead of travelling through a very thin gold foil were seen to rebound backward, as if striking something much more massive than the particles themselves.] – Sir Ernest Rutherford
Black-body low emission,
Wavelength peak curve,
Hone subsume of radiation,
Alpha decay cryopreserve.
“As expected, it [Wien’s radiation law] has a radiation maximum, but delivers values that are too low for large wavelengths. [Rayleigh-James is correct for long wavelengths, but fails for short ones.] … Max Planck corrected the above deficiencies in 1900 through a clever interpolation between Wien’s radiation law (correct for small wavelengths) and Rayleigh-Jeans law (correct for large wavelengths) and developed from it Planck’s law of radiation within a few weeks, which is also considered to be the birth of quantum physics. – Wikipedia
