Bohr, Rutherford, hydrogen, Compton wavelength, fine structure constant
Bohr pursued an analogy to a planet orbiting a sun which he knew was wrong. The quantum mechanics which Bohr helped to construct to replace his orbital theory is also founded on incorrect assumptions. As a result, Bohr’s clever mathematics has destroyed the capacity of modern physics to think clearly about the fundamentals of our nature, and this is why physics has made little progress in the effort to understand.
