Google celebrates Satyendra Nath Bose with doodle

Google on June 4 created a special doodle to celebrate Indian physicist Satyendra Nath Bose and his contribution to the Bose-Einstein statistics.

It was on this day in 1924 that Satyendra Nath Bose sent his quantum formulations to Albert Einstein.

Born on January 1, 1894, Bose studied in Calcutta and was brilliant in his studies.

At age 15, Bose began pursuing a Bachelor of Science degree at Calcutta’s Presidency College.

Even though his research was rejected by a journal, he decided to mail his paper to Albert Einstein.

Einstein recognised the significance of Bose’s theory and generalised it to a wider range of phenomena, and the theory came to be known as Bose-Einstein statistics.
