James Chadwick, a Nobel Laureate, was a British physicist and Nobel Prize winner who made some of the most important contributions to modern physics.

His discovery of the neutron changed subatomic physics and led to the development of the atomic bomb.

This discovery also made it possible to produce new elements.

He was also responsible for the discovery of nuclear fission, which has many uses, both for peace and for war.
