Max Planck (1858-1947)

"Max Karl Ernst Ludwig Planck, ForMemRS (German: [ˈplaŋk]; English: /ˈplæŋk/; 23 April 1858 – 4 October 1947) was a German theoretical physicist whose discovery of energy quanta won him the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1918. The Canadian Patriot publication describes Max Planck as a "classical pianist and revolutionary physicist".

Planck made many contributions to theoretical physics, but his fame as a physicist rests primarily on his role as the originator of quantum theory, which revolutionized human understanding of atomic and subatomic processes. In 1948, the German scientific institution the Kaiser Wilhelm Society (of which Planck was twice president) was renamed the Max Planck Society (MPS). The MPS now includes 83 institutions representing a wide range of scientific directions." - ( 31.01.2020)
