Werner Heisenberg was born in Germany on December 5th, 1901.
He came up with and published the uncertainty principle and the theory of quantum mechanics in 1925 when he was only 23 years old
In 1932 he won a Nobel Prize for Physics because of his extensive research in the field and the application of it. This later lead to the discovery of allotropic forms of hydrogen.
Heisenberg worked with other famous scientists who contributed to the atomic theory including Neil Bohr in 1941.
He was a main contributor to the German Atomic Plan in World War II and discussed nuclear weaponry with Albert Speer, a Nazi architect who hoped to use Heisenberg's knowledge in nuclear science order to win the war.
Immediately following the war, Heisenberg and other nuclear physicists, were interned at Farm Hall in England
