Google's doodle on Niels Bohr. - Google

Google marks the 127th birthday of renowned physicist Niels Bohr by dedicating its homepage to a doodle for the Nobel Laureate displaying one of his landmark discoveries.

The doodle showcases Bohr's atomic model which was introduced by the Danish physicist in 1913.

Bohr's atomic model which paved the way for a new generation of physics called Quantum Physics, replaces the alphabet "o" of Google on its homepage.

The model had replaced all previously existing descriptions of an atom and indicated it has a small nucleus surrounded by atomic particles.

Bohr showed how electrons revolve around the nucleus much similar to that of the solar system.

The doodle incorporates Bohr's formula for change of energy in the atom ∆E= hv, where "h" is the Plank's constant and "v" the frequency in cycles.

The Copenhagen-born scientist went on to clinch the much-coveted Nobel Prize for Physics in 1922 for his services in the investigation of the structure of atoms and of the radiation emanating from them.

He was born in 1885 and his father was a physiology professor at Copenhagen University.

He was also part of the British Physicists crew which worked on the Manhattan Project eventually resulting in the development of the first atom bomb.

Bohr died in 1962, soon after which his son Aage Bohr also won the Nobel Prize for Physics in 1975.
