Satyendra Nath Bose’s journey to fame began in academics. At age 15, Bose started pursuing a Bachelor of Science degree at Calcutta’s Presidency College and earned a Master’s in Applied Mathematics at the University of Calcutta soon after.
Einstein recognised the significance of the discovery — and soon applied Bose’s formula to a wide range of phenomena. Bose’s theoretical paper became one of the most important findings in quantum theory.
– S.N. Bose, however, grasped the importance of Einstein’s theory early. In 1923, Bose sent a paper describing his ideas to a magazine in London, but it was rejected.
