Personal Fact of John Archibald Wheeler

John Archibald Wheeler was a renowned theoretical physicist from America who explained the concept of nuclear fission and fusion. He was instrumental in development of the first atom bomb during World War II and later was involved in the making of the hydrogen bomb. After completing his schooling this scientific genius, associated with the likes of Niels Bohr and Gregory Breit and with the latter he put forth the Breit-Wheeler process to convert light into matter.

He then began his four decade long association with the Princeton University. It was at Princeton that he developed the concept of S-matrix, which holds good even today. Owing to his expertise in the process of nuclear fission he was inducted into Project Manhattan during WWII. He made significant contribution in the development of nuclear reactor as well as in the purification of Plutonium.

After the WWII he resumed his academic responsibilities and was involved in various other research work that included theoretical physics. He spearheaded the revival of theoretical physics and studied the time-space continuum and strived to establish a geometrical basis for phenomenon like gravity. His efforts led to the inception of Geometrodynamics and he even studied wormholes and black holes. In fact he was the one to coin the term black hole. Read on to know more about his life and works
