Pyotr Leonidovich Kapitsa Russian April 8 ) was a Soviet /Russian physicist who discovered superfluidity with some contribution from John F. Allen and Don Misener in He was born in the city of Kronstadt . He worked in Cambridge for over 10 years and then went on a professional visit to the Soviet Union and was not allowed to return to Cambridge. Ernest Rutherford , whom Kapitsa had worked with at Cambridge, sold the Soviets Kapitsa's laboratory equipment. The Soviets then made Kapitsa form the Institute for Physical Problems with his equipment. Kapitsa won the Nobel Prize in Physics in for his work in low-temperature physics . He shared the prize with Arno Allan Penzias and Robert Woodrow Wilson (who won for unrelated work). Kapitsa was eventually removed from his role as head of the institute he created, over his refusal to take part in the Soviet Hydrogen Bomb project. In a letter to Stalin , Kapitsa described the project's leader, Lavrenty Beria , as "like the conductor of an orchestra with the baton in hand but without a score".

Kapitsa, Pyotr Leonidovich
(b . July 8 [June 26, Old Style], 1894, Kronshtadt, Russiad. April 8, 1984, Moscow), Soviet physicist who shared the Nobel Prize for Physics in 1978 for his research in magnetism and low-temperature physics. He discovered that helium II (the stable form of liquid helium below 2.174 K, or -270.976 C) has almost no viscosity ( i.e., resistance to flow). This property is called superfluidity Educated at the Petrograd Polytechnical Institute, Kapitsa remained there as a lecturer until 1921. After his first wife and their two small children died of illness during the chaos of the civil war that followed the Revolution, he went to England to study at the University of Cambridge. There he worked with Ernest Rutherford and became assistant director of magnetic research at the Cavendish Laboratory in 1924, designing apparatus that achieved a magnetic field of 500,000 gauss, which was not surpassed in strength until 1956. He was made a fellow of Trinity College, Cambridge, in 1925 and elected to the Royal Society in 1929, one of only a small number of foreigners to become a fellow. The Royal Society Mond Laboratory was built at Cambridge especially for him in 1932.

    Kapitsa, Pyotr Leonidovich (1894-1984), a Russian physicist. He shared the 1978 Nobel Prize in physics for his work on intense magnetic fields and the generation of low temperatures. He developed methods for liquefying large quantities of helium and oxygen. Kapitsa studied in Petrograd (now St. Petersburg) and at Cambridge University, whose faculty he joined. In 1934 he visited Russia and was forced to stay. He became director of the Institute for Physical Problems and aided in the development of Sputnik I. Related Topics Who Said It?

Kapitsa, Pyotr Leonidovich Pjotr Leonidovich Kapitsa was born in Kronstadt, near Leningrad, on the 9th July 1894, son of Leonid Petrovich Kapitsa, military engineer, and Olga Ieronimovna ne Stebnitskaia, working in high education and folklore research
Kapitsa began his scientific career in A.F. Ioffe's section of the Electromechanics Department of the Petrograd Polytechnical Institute, completing his studies in 1918. Here, jointly with N.N. Semenov, he proposed a method for determining the magnetic moment of an atom interacting with an inhomogeneous magnetic field. This method was later used in the celebrated Stern-Gerlach experiments.
At the suggestion of A.F. Ioffe in 1921 Kapitsa came to the Cavendish Laboratory to work with Rutherford . In 1923 he made the first experiment in which a cloud chamber was placed in a strong magnetic field, and observed the bending of alfa-particle paths. In 1924 he developed methods for obtaining very strong magnetic fields and produced fields up to 320 kilogauss in a volume of 2 cm3. In 1928 he discovered the linear dependence of resistivity on magnetic field for various metals placed in very strong magnetic fields. In his last years in Cambridge Kapitsa turned to low temperature research. He began with a critical analysis of the methods that existed at the time for obtaining low temperatures and developed a new and original apparatus for the liquefaction of helium based on the adiabatic principle (1934).

    Soviet Science: Saga of a Scholar
    Alexander Gurshtein Making Waves: Stories from My Life . Yakov Alpert. xvii + 260 pages. Yale University Press, 2000. $30. In Making Waves, Yakov Alpert, a pioneer in several fields of radio and space-plasma physics, provides a gripping firsthand account of life in the Soviet scientific community from the time of the Bolshevik revolution through the collapse of the Soviet system. This memoir, whose dust jacket features a sketch of Alpert gazing soulfully at the reader, invites comparison with Roald Z. Sagdeev's 1994 autobiography, The Making of a Soviet Scientist (which I reviewed for Sky and Telescope in December 1994, and which Alpert discusses in an appendix). Alpert's sincerity and cordiality in paying tribute to many of his scientific godfathers and colleagues, who were genuine heroes of Soviet science, stand in stark contrast to Sagdeev's penchant for self-advertisement. Under the totalitarian Soviet regime, Alpert did not receive even a small fraction of the decorations that were lavished on his fortunate contemporary Sagdeev, who was designated a Hero of Socialist Labor and won the Lenin Prize. Nonetheless Alpert led a distinguished life, one hallmarked by honesty. Despite the fact that he was stripped of any chance to expose his talent on a large scale during the prime of his career, Alpert realized his scientific gift, eventually achieved prominence and accomplished many things.

The DEC PDP-7 is a minicomputer produced by Digital Equipment Corporation . Introduced in , with a cost of only US-$ 72,000, this computer was very cheap, but quite powerful. The PDP-7 is an 18-bit architecture. In , Ken Thompson wrote the first UNIX system in assembly language on a PDP-7, then named Unics as a somewhat treacherous pun on Multics. There are a few remaining PDP-7 still in operable condition, and an interesting restoration project in Oslo , Norway. External link
