Our physical exhibition ‘Dear Harry’ is now open and we are pleased to say that people are taking an enthusiastic interest in Moseley’s important story. The exhibition is part biography, part World War I centenary, and part history of science. It presents Harry Moseley intimately as a son, scientist, and soldier.
A great piece of coverage for the exhibition was on BBC Radio 4’s Today programme, where our director Dr Silke Ackermann chatted with presenter John Humphrys about the impact of Moseley’s scientific work on the x-ray spectra of the elements, and the subsequent ordering of the Periodic Table, and the legacy of his death in Gallipoli, Turkey on 10 August 1915. She was joined by Professor Andy Parker, head of the Cavendish Laboratory at Cambridge University.
