Lord Kelvin (1824-1907), who was Irish was born in Belfast as William Thomson, originally intended to become a minister of the Presbyterian Church but decided to become a mathematician and physicist instead. He helped with the first successful transatlantic communications cable, and the absolute scale for temperature (where zero is no heat whatsoever) (Kelvin) is named after him.

  • Throughout his long and distinguished life in science Kelvin never discarded the concept that the atom is an indivisible unit [1]

Thomson died on 17 Dec. 1907 in Netherhall (near Largs), Ayrshire, Scotland.
