The discovery of the atomic nucleus episode 3 of 15

Episode 3 of "In Search of Giants": Dr Brian Cox takes us on a journey through the history of particle physics. In this episode, we learn how Ernest Rutherford conducted a historical experiment that revealed that most of the mass of an atom is concentrated in a tiny nucleus made of protons and neutrons. This film is part of a series originally broadcast on teachers' TV (www.teachers.tv). The series was made with the support of the science and technology facilities council (www.scitech.ac.uk). www.lhc.ac.uk, is the official UK LHC website for public and schools.
