Sir Norman Lockyer
|He was the director of the solar physics observatory of the Royal College of Science at South Kensington in London, England. Lockyer proposed, from the observation by Janssen of a yellow line in the sun’s spectrum, that a new element had been detected. This element — helium — was not uncovered on earth until almost thirty years later.
