Wait, how is New Zealand still the UK? They're on opposite sides of the world!

New Zealand was a colony of the UK until the middle of the 19th century. Elizabeth II is still recognized as their monarch.

Rutherford also had citizenship in the UK, spent a large part of his schooling/career there and died there.

Just want to thank everyone who gave my design a vote. This was my first foray into the derby and I was happy just to get a design up in the correct format that didn't get rejected. Never imagined I'd get over 60 votes. Thanks everyone!
