Unformatted text preview: the Royal Engineers of the British Army. Moseley
was assigned to the force of British Empire soldiers that
invaded the region of Gallipoli, Turkey, in April 1915, as a
telecommunications officer. In a tragic loss to science, Moseley
was shot and killed during the Battle of Gallipoli on August 10,
1915, at the age of just 27. Some prominent authors, such as
the biochemist Dr. Isaac Asimov, have speculated that Moseley
would have been deserving of the Nobel Prize in Physics in
1916 — a Nobel Prize that in this case was awarded to nobody
— if he had not died in the service of the British Army. CBEMS 164 – XRD, SEM & Microanalysis: Lecture 12
