At Manchester, Bohr had the opportunity to work closely with H. G. J. Moseley, who had  been studying X rays. Using X rays and photographic plates, Moseley was soon able to  confirm Bohr's hypothesis that adding individual electrons formed the basis for a table of  elements. Moseley was later killed in a war-related incident—a death that shocked Bohr  and the entire scientific community. The war itself remained constantly in the back of  Bohr's mind. When it finally ended, he believed, like many others, that war must never  occur again. In a letter to Rutherford, he expressed the sincere hope that Germany  would not be allowed to dissipate into anarchy, recognizing that stable peace could be  achieved only through a substantial revision of international relations.
