In Mumbai he went to the Cathedral and John Connon School and afterward Elphinstone College, trailed by the Royal Institute of Science. Subsequent to passing the Senior Cambridge Examination at sixteen years old, he joined the Gonvile and Caius College in Cambridge with a goal to seek after mechanical building. His science guide was Paul Dirac, and Bhabha wound up entranced with arithmetic and hypothetical material science. He earned his science certificate in 1930 and Ph.D. in 1934. 

In 1937, together with W. Heitler, a German physicist, Bhabha explained the puzzle about infinite beams. Grandiose beams are quick moving, incredibly little particles originating from space. At the point when these particles enter the world's environment, they slam into the molecules of air and make a shower of electrons. Bhabha's disclosure of the nearness of atomic particles (which he called mesons) in these showers was utilized to approve Einstein's hypothesis of relativity making him world acclaimed. 

At the point when the war broke out in Europe, Bhabha was on a vacation in India. In 1940, C.V. Raman, at that point leader of the Physics Department, Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore, convinced Bhabha to join the establishment as a Reader in Physics and Bhabha chose to remain back in India. In 1941, Homi Bhabha was chosen Fellow of the Royal Society, London, in acknowledgment of his commitments to the field of inestimable beams, basic particles and quantum mechanics. 

Bhabha before long understood the requirement for an establishment completely committed to key research, and wrote to J.R.D. Goodbye for financing. This brought about the foundation of the Tata Institute of Fundamental Research (TIFR) in Mumbai in 1945, with Bhabha as the Director, a position he held until his demise. In 1948, Homi Bhabha was selected the Chairman of the International Atomic Energy Commission. Under his direction, atomic reactors like the Apsara, Cirus and Zerlina were manufactured. He increased universal acknowledgment for his brilliant work and filled in as the President of the main United Nations Conferenceon the PeacefulUses of Atomic Energy, which was held in Geneva in 1955. He was the President of the International Union of Pure and Applied Physics from 1960 to 1963. 

A multi-faceted identity, Bhabha was monstrously attached to music, painting and composing. A portion of his canvases are shown in the British Art Galleries and the TIFR workmanship gathering today is evaluated as a standout amongst the best accumulations of contemporary Indian craftsmanship in the nation. 

He is the beneficiary of the Adam's Award, Padma Bhushan, an Honorary Fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences and Foreign Associate of the National Academy of Sciences in the United States.
