Heisenberg Web Exhibit
The life of Werner Heisenberg, by the AIP Center for History of Physics. Text by historian David C. Cassidy and many illustrations describe Heisenberg's contributions to quantum physics, especially the discovery of quantum mechanics and the Uncertainty Principle, and his life in Germany under the Nazi regime and thereafter.

This physics video explains the concept of nuclear fission reaction by illustrating an example of nuclear fission of Uranium 235 atom. Nuclear fission is nuc...
Robert Oppenheimer - 4. 22.1904 – 2.18.1967 - was an American physicist and professor of physics at the University of California. Along with Enrico Fermi,he is often called the "father of the atomic bomb" for his role in the Manhattan Project, the World War II project that developed the first nuclear weapons. The 1st atomic bomb was detonated on 7.16.1945, in New Mexico.
Nine Stubborn Brain Myths That Just Won't Die, Debunked by Science
Brain games will make you smarter! The internet is making you dumber! Alcohol is killing your brain cells! The brain is a mystery we've been trying to solve for ages, and the desire to unlock its secrets has led to vast amounts of misinformation. Many of these false notions are more widely believed than the truth. We took our healthy skepticism and a bunch of brain research to find the truth behind some of the most common myths about intelligence and our brains. Here's what we learned.

Niels Bohr was a Danish physicist who made fundamental contributions to understanding atomic structure and quantum mechanics, for which he received the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1922. Bohr’s work helped solve the problems classical physics could not explain about the nuclear model of the atom.

Inventor, Scientist. A physicist, he first demonstrated his invention, the cyclotron (atom smasher), in 1930; it accelerated protons. The cyclotron later produced radioisotopes for medical use. He was at university of California from 1928-58 and in 1936 became director of its Radiation Laboratory at Berkeley, later...

While best known for his mass–energy equivalence formula E = mc2 which has been dubbed the world's most famous equation, he received the 1921 Nobel Prize in Physics for his services to theoretical physics, Einstein denounced using the new discovery of nuclear fission as a weapon. Later, with the British philosopher Bertrand Russell, Einstein signed the Russell–Einstein Manifesto, which highlighted the danger of nuclear weapons.
