Master of Uncertainty
This fascinating online exhibit devoted to the German physicist Werner Heisenberg (1901-1976) traces the birth of quantum mechanics, the wartime effort to build a German atom bomb, and other episodes in his remarkable life. Prepared by Heisenberg biographer David Cassidy of Hofstra University and the Center for History of Physics (at the American Institute of Physics), the Web site draws on a wealth of historical and explanatory material, including photographs, instructive animations, and quotations from scientific papers.
