About Homi J. Bhabha Death Anniversary

24th of January prominently marks the death anniversary of the ‘’Father of the Indian nuclear programme’’ Homi Jehangir Bhabha.

This year 2017, marks his 51st death anniversary. Born on the 30th of October in the year 1909, Homi J. Bhabha was an extremely prominent figure who was not just an Indian nuclear physicist but also the founding director of two popular research institutions, namely, the Tata Institute of Fundamental Research, where he also worked as the professor of Physics, and the Trombay Atomic Energy Establishment, which in present-day, has been named after him and now known as Bhabha Atomic Research Center. Both these institutes primarily function as centers for the development of nuclear weapons.

He got his degree in mechanical engineering from Cambridge University on insistence from his uncle, Dorab Tata, and then returned to India and joined the Tata Steel Mills as a metallurgist in Jamshedpur, the most populous urban city of the Indian state of Jharkhand, in the present day.

He is known for a list of contributions to the field of science and nuclear programmes, some of which are the cascade process of cosmic radiations, the point particles, the Bhabha Scattering Theory, as well as the Theoretical Prediction of the Muon, apart from the Indian nuclear programme, of course.
