Today’s Google Doodle: On June 4, Google honored Satyendra Nath Bose by putting an animated image of him on its home page. Who was Satyendra Nath Bose, and why was he remembered by Google today? Satyendra Nath Bose was an Indian mathematician and a notable theoretical physics scientist who was born on January 1, 1894. In the 1920s, he made significant advances in the study of quantum mechanics. Bose Statistics and Bose Condensate were founded by him. In 1954, the government of India bestowed the Padma Vibhushan upon him.

Some interesting facts about Satyendra Nath Bose
Bose was born in the Indian city of Kolkata. He was the family’s eldest son, with just six sisters following him. His education began at the age of five, when he was accepted to the New Indian School. He enrolled at the Hindu School during his senior year of high school. In 1909, he passed the board exams. He finished sixth in his class. He then enrolled at Presidency College in Calcutta. His teachers were Jagadish Chandra Bose, Sarada Prasanna Das, and Prafulla Chandra Ray.
Satyendra Nath Bose Carrer research
He was a lecturer in the Physics Department of the Rajabazar Science College, University of Calcutta, from 1916 to 1921. In 1919, Bose and Saha collaborated on the first English book, which was based on German and French translations of Einstein’s original articles on special and general relativity. He became a member of the Physics Department at the University of Dhaka (now Bangladesh) in 1921. Bose created numerous new departments, including laboratories to teach advanced courses for M.Sc and B. Sc Honors students, as well as teaching Thermodynamics and James Clerk Maxwell’s Theory of Electromagnetism.
Bose won every public examination from high school through a BSc in mathematics in 1913 and an MSc in 1915, while Saha finished in second. Though he struggled to find work after that, Bose got a break in 1916 when Sir Ashutosh Mukherjee built the University College of Science (science instruction had hitherto been monopolized by Presidency College) and enlisted the help of young minds like Bose and Saha.
The significance of the discovery was quickly realized by Einstein, who applied Bose’s formula to a wide spectrum of events. Bose’s theoretical work became one of quantum theory’s most important results. The Indian government honored Bose’s outstanding contributions to physics by bestowing the Padma Vibhushan, the country’s highest civilian honor. He was also named National Professor, India’s highest accolade for academics.
