The Nobel Prize-winning physicist who invented the Rutherford model of particle physics, and now the world over, is leaving the field of physics.
Rutherford has been a scientist for decades, with many Nobel prizes, and his research focuses on the structure and behaviour of the universe.
He won a Nobel prize for his discovery of the Higgs boson in 2011.
But he was a physicist, not a theoretical physicist.
The Nobel Prize committee said in a statement that he had left the field for a number of reasons, including: He said he wanted to pursue his own interests, and that he felt that his time in physics was up.
The prize committee said it would continue to seek to find new collaborators for the next generation of Nobel laureates.
It said it was very grateful for Rutherford’s support and commitment to the science of physics, its members and the wider public, and called on him to continue his research and his work in the field.
In a statement on Twitter, the Nobel committee said Rutherford was the first to propose a framework for measuring the speed of light in a particle accelerator and that his work helped define the standard model of physics and the physics of quantum mechanics.
He has also played a role in the development of a range of theoretical foundations for the search for extraterrestrial life, including the Large Hadron Collider, which will operate at CERN, the European particle accelerator in Geneva, Switzerland, and the Large Synchrotron at the LHC.
Rathburn is also a member of the Physics Advisory Board of the US National Academies of Sciences and Engineering, and is a trustee of the World Science Festival, an annual celebration of physics in Europe.
He is also the editor of the Journal of Physical Chemistry.
He received his PhD in physics from the University of Cambridge in 1987.
