Fine. FIRST EDITIONS. "Soon after the discovery (1896) of radioactivity Elster and Geitel began to study Becquerel rays, in order to determine the origin of the energy of these rays. [William] Crookes (1832-1919) had proposed the hypothesis that the air molecules with the greatest velocity stimulated the rays; energy was therefore extracted from the surrounding air. Elster and Geitel placed ur... View more info

In late 1897 or early 1898, Gerhard Schmidt "made the discovery for which he is most famous - the radioactivity of thorium. (Marie Curie soon made the same discovery independently.) Schmidt made this discovery while examining 'many elements and compounds' in an effort to determine whether any of the rays that were emitted bore a resemblance to those that Henri Becquerel had found emerging from ura...
