Reith Lectures were directed by Professor Oppenheimer to an examination of ‘what there is new in atomic physics that is relevant, helpful, and inspiriting for men to know’. This led him, he says, into a relatively quiet room, that we know as quantum theory or atomic theory, in the house called ‘science’.
