Albert Einstein – In 14. 03. 1879. Was born German – Jewish physicist Albert Einstein,
creator the theory of relativity, which apparently seems to be devoid of applications.
However, it is a device which, without this theory would not work – a GPS receiver.
In 1921. He won the Nobel Prize for his explanation of the photoelectric effect and
contribution to the development of theoretical physics. From the age of four he played
the violin. Elsa, his wife recalled:
“As a little girl I fell in love Albert, because so beautifully played Mozart on the violin. […] “
Werner Karl Heisenberg
Werner Karl Heisenberg – In 05.12.1901 was born Werner K. Heisenberg, German physicist,
philosopher, co-founder of quantum mechanics. In 1932. He won the Nobel Prize in physics,
a fundamental contribution to the creation of quantum mechanics.
Otto Hahn – German physical chemist
Otto Hahn – In 22.12.1938 German physical chemist Otto Hahn performed the first attempt to split a nucleus of an atom. For what, he won the Nobel Prize in 1944.
Meteorological week analysis
Meteorological week analysis – After analyzing the meteorological data from the years 1991-2005,
the German researchers found that the hottest day of the week is Wednesday, and the driest – Monday.
However, in the weekend usually it rains. Within a week, smog obscures the sun and the exhaust gases
are involved in the formation of clouds. On Saturday, this phenomenon goes critical.
Alcoholism effects – repairing damaged neurons
Alcoholism effects – repairing damaged neurons – Scientists from Wurzburg in Germany
found that damage to brain cells caused by excessive alcohol consumption can be repaired only partially.
They note that in the interest of alcoholics is the fastest return to sobriety. Longer heavy drinking
causes brain regeneration proceeds with great difficulty.
Wilhelm Roentgen – German physicist – In 27.03.1845 born German physicist W. Roentgen.
In 1895 he discovered a new kind of radiation, which he called X-rays. In 1901 received the
first Nobel Prize in physics. He was also the physics of fluids and crystallography.
Max Planck – German physicist
Max Planck – German physicist – In 04.23.1858 born German physicist Max Planck.
In 1889. He discovered a physical constant, later called his name. He was awarded
the Nobel Prize. He defined thermodynamics, heat radiation, energy dispersion,
optics, relativity and quantum theory.
Carl Friedrich Gauss – mathematician, physicist, astronomer
Carl Friedrich Gauss – mathematician, physicist, astronomer – In 02.23.1855 died German
mathematician, physicist and astronomer Carl F. Gauss (born in 1777). One of the founders of
non-Euclidean geometry. He introduced the concepts of the optical axis of the lens, focal length,
focus and center of the lens.
Johannes Stark – specialist of electrical discharges in gases

German physicist J. Stark. He discovered and described the so-called Stark effect. He dealt with
phenomena occurring during electrical discharges in gases. Nobel Prize laureate.
Wilhelm Friedrich Ostwald – founder of modern physical chemistry
Wilhelm Friedrich Ostwald – founder of modern physical chemistry – In 04.04.1932 died German chemist Wilhelm F. Ostwald. He conducted research in the field of statics and chemical kinetics, catalysis issues, the theory of electrolytic dissociation and scheme of colors. He was one of the founders of modern physical chemistry. Nobel Prize laureate.
