1885-1962 Niels Bohr was born on October 7, 1885 in Copenhagen.
He was born as the son of Christian and Ellen Bohr. 1885 In 1903, Niels entered Copenhagen University.
An announcement by the Academy of Sciences in Copenhagen issued a prize to be awarded for the solution of a scientific problem in 1908 and he won the gold medal.
Niels received his Master's degree in Physics in 1909
Niels Bohr received his Doctor's degree in 1911. 1903-1911 Niels Bohr wins the Nobel Prize for Physics for his services in the investigation of the structure of atoms, including his famous Bohr Model on January, 1922. 1922 In 1936, Niels Bohr pointed out that in nuclear processes the smallness of the region in which interactions take place justify the transition processes to be described more in a classical way than atoms. 1936 Copenhagen University In 1916, Bohr returned permanently to the University of Copenhagen, where he was appointed to the Chair of Theoretical Physics. In 1918, he began efforts to establish the University Institute of Theoretical Physics, which he later directed. Bohr researched many reports to aid him in his work. 1916-1918 Niels Bohr returned to Copenhagen to study the use of nuclear energy.
He later died on November 18, 1962 in Copenhagen from a stroke. 1962 Werner Heisenberg, an assistant to Niels Bohr and university lecturer, assisted Niels Bohr in his works in Copenhagen from 1926 to 1927. In 1927, Heisenberg developed his uncertainty principle, while working on the mathematical foundations of quantum mechanics. 1926-1927 http://www.atomicarchive.com/Bios/Bohr.shtml

The work proposed that electrons travel in a certain or guided path around an atom’s nucleus. His work used many sources to make a better understanding such as the Rutherford Model.
