THE man behind the mobile phone, Bradford's Nobel Prize winner Sir Edward Appleton, will be the next subject at Bradford Cathedral’s monthly Monday Fellowship talks.

Dianne Excell, who will be the next speaker at this Monday's talk, will discuss Sir Edward Appleton, Bradford's famous Nobel Prize winner.

Speaking about Sir Edward Appleton, Dianne said: “He was perhaps the greatest scientist to have come from Bradford. He won the Nobel Prize for Physics, laid the foundations for international wireless communications and made lasting contributions to our understanding of the Sun and the earth’s atmosphere.

“Yet it is doubtful whether anyone using a mobile phone in Bradford realises how someone from their city had a major part in the science behind this technology.

“The talk aims to tell the story of the man behind the discoveries.”

The Monday Fellowship group meet on the second Monday of every month at 2pm, in the de Lacy Centre at Bradford Cathedral, to catch up with each other over tea, coffee and cake, alongside enjoying a talk from a guest speaker.
