Çanakkale Onsekiz Mart University
Henry Moseley in his 90th Anniversary

"His Role in Our Journey From Periodic Table to the Structure of Matter" with an evaluation of "Role of Science and Scientist in War and Peace"

29th September - 1st October 2005
 

Troia Conference Hall / ÇOMU - Çanakkale -Turkey

      MAIN TOPICS:

  • Dr. Moseley’s life and contribution to science

  • The roles of science and scientists in war and peace

  • X-ray crystallography since Henry Moseley

  • Dr. Moseley’s contribution to quantum physics

  • Structure of matter: from Periodic Table to quarks

 

      Dr. Moseley's tragic death in the Gallipoli War at Gallipoli Front, (Çanakkale - Turkey) on August 10, 1915 reverberated in scientific circles with comments "too valuable to die". Afterwards, governments decided to keep away their scientists away from war fronts. After Turkish Independence War (1919 - 1923), resulting Lausanne Treaty (1924) and establishment of peace and friendship among the same nations, all heroes who fell at Gallipoli War were warmly greeted  by Mustafa Kemal Atatürk, as the president of Turkey, in 1934, with the following words:

"Those heroes from faraway lands who shed their blood on the soil of Gallipoli: Here you are in the soil of a friendly country. Rest in peace. You are side by side and lying together with Turkish soldiers... You, the mothers who sent their sons to war from far away countries... Wipe away your tears. Your sons are lying on our bosom. They are at peace and they will rest in peace. After having lost their lives on this land, they have become our sons now...", (M.K. Atatürk, 1934)

At the 90th anniversary of his death, we aim to remember Dr. Moseley's contribution to science as well as to evaluate the role of science and scientist at war and peace, which may help us to understand the present day unrest in the world.
