Werner Heisenberg

(6 x 30 minute episodes)

This series examines the life of Werner Heisenberg, his achievements in the field of quantum physics and his philosophy of life. Heisenberg's quantum mechanics opened new doors in the realm of physics and brought the predominant mechanical theories of Sir Isaac Newton under question. Without quantum mechanics we would not have any micro chips or computers. We would also not have any nuclear power plants or nuclear weapons.
