Google pays tribute to Indian physicist Satyendra Nath Bose with a special doodle
Google has paid tribute to Indian physicist Satyendra Nath Bose with a doodle on his birth anniversary. Bose was deep into atomic theory and statistics even before Albert Einstein’s famous theory of relativity came into play.
He is best known for his work on quantum mechanics, which led to an understanding that particles could be in two places at once (when measured).
Satyendra Nath Bose was born on January 1, 1894, in Kolkata.
Satyendra Nath Bose was born on January 1, 1894, in Kolkata (then Calcutta). He belonged to a Bengali Hindu family and his father was a lawyer. His mother was a housewife. He had a younger brother, who was also interested in science and mathematics, but died at an early age due to health issues.
Bose studied at the University of Calcutta for his Bachelor’s degree in Physics under the tutelage of Jagadish Chandra Bose (no relation) and followed it up with post-graduate studies from Trinity College Cambridge University where he received his doctorate from Caius College Cambridge after which he returned to India as its first research fellow at Allahabad University where he worked with Jagadish Chandra Bose again before moving on to teach at Presidency College Kolkata.
His association with Rabindranath Tagore led to the establishment of an annual conference on science and religion which is held even today. He established an Indian Institute of Sciences (IISc) in Bangalore in 1909 that remained under British rule until India gained independence from Britain in 1947 and then became India’s Bangalore campus under its new name: Indian Institute of Technology Madras (IIT Madras).
Bose made major contributions to wireless communication theory by introducing quantum mechanics into radio waves which eventually led us to today’s wireless technology like mobile phones!
Later, in 1945, Bose became a Fellow of the Royal Society and served as a general secretary of the National Institute of Science and Technology (now IISER Kolkata).
Bose was the first Indian to be elected as a Fellow of the Royal Society.
The Royal Society is a British scientific academy that has included many famous scientists and thinkers, including Isaac Newton and Albert Einstein. Founded in 1660, it’s one of the oldest scientific organizations in the world. Society is also responsible for publishing several prestigious journals including Philosophical Transactions A: Mathematical Physical and Engineering Sciences (which dates back to 1665) and Biological Science (which began publishing in 1887).
In 1945, Bose became a Fellow of the Royal Society and served as a general secretary of the National Institute of Science & Technology (now IISER Kolkata).
He published more than 25 research papers and books throughout his career.
Bose’s first research paper was published in 1921, and he continued to publish new research papers throughout his career. He published 25 research papers throughout his career. In addition to his research publications, Bose also published a number of books. As a matter of fact, during his lifetime he published 25 books—25 works on science, philosophy, and religion. These works include The Religion of Man (1930), The Mind of Mahatma Gandhi (1934), and Studies in Physics (1959).
Bose was recognized by many national and international institutions for his contributions to science. He was presented with two awards from the British government: one for “research work” by the Royal Society in 1930; another for “outstanding discoveries” by King George VI at Buckingham Palace on December 31st, 1936.
