Max Planck's Quantum Theory Is Born (1900)

Considered the inventor of quantum theory, Max Planck shocked the science world by showing that atoms emit or absorb energy in bundles, or quanta, not in a continuous stream as taught by Newtonian physics. This insight, along with subsequent developments by Einstein, Bohr, and others, established the revolutionary quantum theory of modern physics and earned Planck the 1918 Nobel Prize in Physics. In 1945, Planck's son was executed following a failed attempt to assassinate what political figure? More...

In January 1945, Erwin, to whom he had been particularly close, was sentenced to death by the Nazi Volksgerichtshof because of his participation in the failed attempt to assassinate Hitler in July 1944. Erwin was executed on 23 January 1945

Quantum theory! So weird you just have to take it on faith, it's hard to grasp.

I thought it was only modern celebrities who posed for pictures by turning their back & looking over their shoulder. Whistle

MAX PLANCK LETTER TO HITLER DISCOVERED

A remarkable letter, written in October 1944 to Hitler by Max Planck, has recently come to light and been passed to Graham. In the note, the discoverer of the energy quantum pleads for the life of his son Erwin, who was involved in the attempted to kill Hitler three months before. Max Planck had already lost his eldest son, who was killed in the Battle of Verdun, during World War I.

Planck writes in his letter that he is ‘confident’ that the Führer will lend his ear to ‘an imploring 87-year-old’. This plea, apparently written from the Planck family’s bombed-out home in a suburb of Berlin, was ignored by the authorities. Planck’s plea failed—Erwin was executed on 23 January 1945, and his death certificate recorded: ‘parents unknown’.

The letter, discovered among the papers of the U-boat captain Jürgen Oesten, has been released into the public domain by his grandson, Paul Oesten-Creasey, who showed it to Professor Michael Berry, who in turn drew it the attention of Graham.

Dietrich Bonhoeffer was part of the resistance movement and the plot to kill Hitler.

Godspeed to our Aussie family fighting terrorist today in their homeland.
