In the late 1800s, physicists knew that the atom contained large quantities of energy, and in 1904 Ernest Rutherford, the so-called father of nuclear energy, wrote
“If it were possible to control…an enormous amount of energy could be obtained from a small amount of matter.”
Shortly afterward, Einstein formulated his famous equation, E=mc^2, which states that energy is inherent in anything that has mass. In the late 1930s, physicists began experimenting to prove Einstein’s formula, and in 1942, the first controlled, self-sustaining nuclear reaction took place.
