Vishwamitra:

Never heard of him. Would be interesting to read your book once complete.





i dont know when i will complete it bro... the idea behind the book is to provide a history of the thought process of modern physics as we know it.. from max planck striving to create the most efficient light bulb to the mysterious nature of light(chose that particular starting point because that is where the roots of eletctro-magnetic theories becomes stronger - from prior newtonian views)... to todays quantum theories... I want the book to be more of a evolution of scientific principles with historical progression of scientific thought. hopefully someday i will get there

If I may ask you - what has driven you to pick this Person as your subject for the book?




this particular story is not the focus, just one of the incidents in the history of neutron discovery..

thanks.. assalu idea kuda ledu.. first time hearing the name. let me see if vivekananda interacted with him.

Based on just your post and nothing from google..

Mental_sachinodu:

later it was revealed that it was te atomic bomb



and you said previously he did do:

Mental_sachinodu:

worked in complete isolation for atleast 2 years



And you stating this line:

Mental_sachinodu:

extreme introverts who loathe to be in any kind of spot light



This would be most logical...

Mental_sachinodu:

2) Priesthood - He is believed to have escaped to become a priest.




Cause thats what geniuses do... they repeat things they like.... and in the end for him science was for himself.. not for the world.

If you are writing a story my take would be.... in process of story telling use Nazi as a interesting element... to keep the suspense where did he dissapear... but ultimately give a happy ending to audience that he is fine and lived his own life for himself.

Mental_sachinodu:


I read this post 3 different times.. last night when you posted.. early morning and now..
Everytime the only thought i had was

Whyme:

interesting




Interesting because it made me read it thru, start thinking about and also I know nothing about the topic. This is the first time I heard the name.

Is there a rather simpler possibility for his disappearance? Suicide ..since he already wavered back and forth on the idea (few) times? Kidnapping , defection are good possibilities due to the nature of those times and his work.

I gave the name to my daughter while driving her to school this morning.. she likes digging thru the names that mean something with some intrigue and are not main stream.. I am sure it will pick her interest

a sliver of context for this post - This is part of notes that I am compiling for a book I have been working on - it still needs some references to articles of the time or authors' works i have stumbled upon in the past.

There are people who are shy, and then there are people who are extreme introverts who loathe to be in any kind of spot light. One such character is Ettore Majorana . He was classified a mercurial genius, who never revealed his capabilities and had no intentions to publish any work he has done. The only way we ever knew how truly special he was, by forced interactions between him and Enrico Fermi's team.

We know Enrico Fermi - was a pioneer in radioactive research, and he is created as the creator of first Nuclear reactor. Ettore Majorana was one of the key members in Enrico Fermi's research team - while working with Fermi recognised that Ettore had discovered the existence of Neutron, much before James Chadwick's famous experiment.

Fermi coerced Ettore to publish his work, while Ettore was shying away. Fermi used every tactic as a mentor, and eventually got Ettore to publish his work - this brought Ettore much detested fame, and spotlight. Ettore, unable to cope with it, worked in complete isolation for atleast 2 years, only talking to Fermi and few others very ocassionally.

The story of his disappearance -

In 1938, he sent letter to director of Naples physics institute where he was teaching, that he is making an unavoidable decision, and letting him know as a courtesy and apologized to any inconvenience that it may cause to the students and the institute.

in a couple of hours, he sent another telegram, that he has canceled his plans and bought a ticket to Palermo to Naples.

There is evidence that he boarded the boat in Palermo, but never set foot in Naples.

Initially it was thought that he committed a suicide, during the boat ride. but there was no proof to that either. there was extensive searches done, but never found a body. Fermi insisted on keeping the investigation going on, as they were working on a critical project - later it was revealed that it was te atomic bomb.

Ettore's family rejected the suicide option - for two reasons
1) He withdrew all his earnings on the day of the travel
2) He was devout catholic and suicide was never an option for him.

after years of investigation the case never went any where, and Fermi was known to say that, "The reason we never found anything is because Ettore did not want us to find anything. he is way smart for us to track him".

Possible reason
it was theorized that, Majorana's research revealed to him the dangers of atomic fission, and the dangers it posed, and what it could unleash. He was working with some german engineers, who attested that Ettore started becoming reluctant, few weeks before his disappearance. He apaprently stopped his correspondence regarding atomic fission, which they were surprised because he had been making significant progess.

Post Disapperance theories
1) Suicide - this was the obvious theory
2) Priesthood - He is believed to have escaped to become a priest.
3) escape to venezuela - this theory is probably what actually happened as there have been ocassions where Ettore has been seen by few folks in around 1955 and 1959. the case was officially closed with this as the closing argument.
4) Kidnapped by Nazis - it is theorized that Ettore has been showing signs of distress, and was running away from someone. It is believed that Nazis have kidnapped him to work on the atomic bomb, following his various breakthroughs in the field It is said a Nazi has boarded in Palerma in his disguise and he was kidnapped before the boat travel has started. It is also theorized that Ettore's appearance in Venezuela is because of many Nazi's moving to Venezuela after the war.
