Rutherford wrote to Bohr with a proposal that would be hard to refuse. Manchester was  also planning to establish a research center for modern physics. Rutherford indicated to  Bohr the current state of his research, whose groundbreaking implications Bohr instantly  recognized. Rutherford also expressed his sincere desire that Bohr be with him to  interpret his new and startling results. Bohr struggled with his decision, recognizing the  superior resources that England had to offer and the satisfaction he gained from  working with Rutherford. Nevertheless, he felt a duty to his country and university, which  had made his opportunities possible and had allowed him to realize his dream of  starting his own institute. Rutherford was asked to replace Thomson as Cavendish  professor at Cambridge.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
