Regardless, it was fortunate, if that’s the right word, that of the two Werners, Werner Heisenberg, a poor administrator, was in charge of Uranverein and not Werner von Braun.

After the Second World War, Heisenberg became one of the leading researchers to rebuild the German scientific landscape: he became director of the Max Planck Institute for Physics, today’s Werner Heisenberg Institute, and he enjoyed participating in political debates, for instance as a government advisor for science policy.

Resources for Frayn’s Copenhagen: Werner Heisenberg Heisenberg, in the play and in the world, is the unknown. His role in the Nazi atomic bomb project is the subject of much speculation, and his German nationalism created and creates suspicion and ambiguity.
Oct 16, 2018 · Werner Heisenberg, in full Werner Karl Heisenberg, (born December 5, 1901, Würzburg, Germany—died February 1, 1976, Munich, West Germany), German physicist and philosopher who discovered (1925) a way to formulate quantum mechanics in terms of matrices. For that discovery, he was awarded the Nobel Prize for Physics for 1932.
Heisenberg requested the meeting, and he traveled to the Bohr’s home in Copenhagen. There is much uncertainty about what was discussed in that meeting. In Copenhagen , the ghosts of Werner Heisenberg, Niels Bohr, and Margrethe Bohr reminisce about what happened, or might have happened.
Werner’s father, an army reservist, was called for duty and sent home due to his wounds in 1916. It was a sense of duty and patriotism that would later prevent Werner Heisenberg from leaving Germany in the days before the Second World War. Heisenberg’s many Jewish colleagues asked him …
Sep 27, 2002 · Ostensibly about a meeting between Niels and Margrethe Bohr and Werner Heisenberg at Bohr’s home in Copenhagen in 1941. Physics, relativity and quantum mechanics collide with geopolitics, morality, existentialism, humanity and friendship in a few moments of time, told and re-told as seen from different perspectives.
The Copenhagen interpretation was the first general attempt to understand the world of atoms as this is represented by quantum mechanics. The founding father was mainly the Danish physicist Niels Bohr, but also Werner Heisenberg, Max Born and other physicists made important contributions to the overall understanding of the atomic world that is
In 1941 the German physicist Werner Heisenberg made a clandestine trip to Copenhagen to see his Danish counterpart and friend Niels Bohr. Their work together on quantum mechanics and the uncertainty principle had revolutionized atomic physics.
The Mysterious Meeting between Niels Bohr and Werner Heisenberg The Bohr-Heisenberg Meeting at Copenhagen: 70 th Anniversary September 15-21, 1941 In the fall of 1941, the course of history in the Second World War took a different pathway based upon a mere conversation between two men.
