Storyboard Text

  • 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.
