Niels Bohr (1885-1962)
Bohr championed quantum mechanics, and issued the challenge
to Einstein, "God does play dice with the universe."
Einstein disagreed but still recognized Bohr's genius, calling
him "unquestionably one of the greatest discoverers of
our age in the scientific field." Bohr proposed a new dynamic
model of the atom derived from work on spectral lines and his
brilliant leap to complementarity was destined to fame and glory.
