Helmholtz must have recognized a rare talent in Hertz, immediately asking him to work on a problem whose solution he was particularly interested in.
In August 1879, aged 22, Hertz won the prize – a gold medal.
Hertz’s discovery was the foundation stone for much of our modern communications technology. Radio, television, satellite communications, and mobile phones all rely on it. Even microwave ovens use electromagnetic waves: the waves penetrate the food, heating it quickly from the inside.
in 1886, aged 29, Hertz married Elisabeth Doll in Karlsruhe. She was the daughter of a mathematician. They had two daughters, Johanna and Mathilde. Mathilde became an influential biologist, making thought-provoking discoveries in the field of how animals solve problems.
Heinrich Rudolf Hertz died aged 36 in Bonn on January 1, 1894 of blood-vessel inflammation resulting from immune system problems – specifically granulomatosis with polyangiitis.
