Basic information

Henry Moseley was born on November 23 1887 in England. He went to private schools for most of his early years. When he got older he decided that the science classes he was taking were to easy for him so he went work with the famous scientist Earnest Rutherford. Rutherford took him because the professors at oxford told Rutherford that he was a very good, promising student.While he was working with Rutherford he made a BIG discovery. He found out that every element’s identity is uniquely determined by the number of protons it has he found this out by using self-built equipment.
