Niels Bohr

Welcome to our Famous Dreams: Niels Bohr page.

Image of Niels Bohr Dutch physicist, Niels Bohr was awarded the Nobel Prize in 1922.

Upon successfully completing his doctorate in physics, Bohr gained notoriety in the physics fraternity almost overnight. This was due to his knack of being able to decipher complex problems that for much time had frustrated his peers and colleagues.

In due course, Bohr turned his attention to atoms and their structure. He designed many varying frameworks as to the configuration but none seemed to fit.

One evening Bohr retired to bed and began dreaming about atoms. Bohr’s stated that he saw the nucleus of the atom with the electronis spinning around it, just as the planets do around the sun.

The dream spurred Bohr to promptly attend his lab and begin seeking confirmation of his dream. Testing confirmed the vision he had received. Bohr later said that immediately upon awakening, he knew the dream was correct; that he felt it was true and as such always attributed his finding to the slept vision.
