Abstract

How did bad weather and a chance observation of what was most likely a failed experiment, lead to the Nobel-prize winning discovery of radioactivity? In this article, the author narrates the story of Henri Becquerel’s experiments with uranium salts, describing a series of scientific investigations that arose to understand an unexpected and unusual observation, originally made by this physicist.
