    Another great name in the field of physics, John Wheeler, has passed away at the age of 96.

    Wheeler studied under Bohr and worked with other great names in the field of physics including Einstein.

    Wheeler was involved in the Manhattan Project and the development of the hydrogen bomb.

    In astrophysics, he studied unified field theory, space continuum and gravitation. It was Wheeler who coined the phrase "Black hole"
