Description

Werner Heisenberg is a key figure in 20th century physics. He was one of the pioneers of quantum mechanics and introduced the famous uncertainty principle, which states that it is impossible to know both speed and position of a quantum particle exactly at the same time. How did he come to this amazing discovery? And what should we think of his involvement in the German atomic bomb project during World War II?
