The Rutherford Scattering Experiment


The First Experiment That Supposedly Proved Atoms Real

Models replace reality. Most of reality then becomes defined as empty space from which an infinite amount of energy can magically be derived.

This is the first part in a series that will build towards showing why nuclear weaponry is fake and why the concept of the atom is just an illogical model.

Despite all scientific hype to the contrary, particle physics is not much different from taking a rorschach test. Atoms and electrons and all the rest were never actually "discovered" as claimed. The next article will get into more details. This video is meant to be foundational for the rest of the series. Experimental results are not all created equal. Some experiments are not as they seem. Some results are more interpreted than we are suppose to know. Future articles will build on the information found here.

No Such Thing As Atomic Energy - Nikola Tesla Disagreed with JJ Thomson & The Rest

“Let me say that has nothing to do with releasing so-called atomic energy. There is no such energy in the sense usually meant. With my currents, using pressures as high as 15,000,000 volts, the highest ever used, I have split atoms — but no energy was released. I confess that before I made this experiment I was in some fear. I said to my assistants, ‘I do not know what will happen. If the conclusions of certain scientists are right, the release of energy from the splitting of an atom may mean an explosion which would wreck our apparatus and perhaps kill someone. Is that understood?’  Nikola Tesla

“My assistants urged me to perform the experiment and I did so. I shattered atoms again and again. But no appreciable energy was released.”   Nikola Tesla

"Sir Joseph John Thomson OM PRS[1] (/ˈtɒmsən/; 18 December 1856 – 30 August 1940) was an English physicist and Nobel laureate in physics, credited with the discovery and identification of the electron; and with the discovery of the first subatomic particle."

Some Experiments on the Electric Discharge in Vacuum Tubes by Prof ...

1908: A Vacuum Tube Electrical Experiment

"A 1908 paper by Geiger, On the Scattering of α-Particles by Matter,[12] describes the following experiment. He constructed a long glass tube, nearly two meters in length. At one end of the tube was a quantity of "radium emanation" (R) that served as a source of alpha particles. The opposite end of the tube was covered with a phosphorescent screen (Z). In the middle of the tube was a 0.9 mm-wide slit. The alpha particles from R passed through the slit and created a glowing patch of light on the screen. A microscope (M) was used to count the scintillations on the screen and measure their spread. Geiger pumped all the air out of the tube so that the alpha particles would be unobstructed, and they left a neat and tight image on the screen that corresponded to the shape of the slit. Geiger then allowed some air in the tube, and the glowing patch became more diffuse. Geiger then pumped out the air and placed some gold foil over the slit at AA. This too caused the patch of light on the screen to become more spread out. This experiment demonstrated that both air and solid matter could markedly scatter alpha particles. The apparatus, however, could only observe small angles of deflection. Rutherford wanted to know if the alpha particles were being scattered by even larger angles—perhaps larger than 90°."


Rutherford and the Birth of Nuclear Physics

Please note the art of apologetics. Whenever one of these sainted minds get something wrong, it's ok, somehow it's subsequently right anyway.
