    Sir Marcus Oliphant was a founding father of the Australian National University in Canberra and a former Governor of South Australia. While at Adelaide University in 1927, he was accepted by Cambridge University, where he became part of a team whose task was to split the atom. During World War Two, he developed the centimetre wave radar. After the bomb was used against civilians in Hiroshima, he went on to devote his considerable scientific talent and energies to finding peaceful uses for atomic power.
