The human heart is as enigmatic as the unpredictable atom.

In 1941, Werner Heisenberg, the physicist who was heading the nuclear reactor programme of Germany at the time and famous for his “Uncertainty Principle”, visited Niels Bohr, his mentor and former employer in Copenhagen. Bohr was the 1922 awardee of the Nobel Prize in Physics and an authority in quantum mechanics, who enjoyed the same esteem as Albert Einstein.  But with his Jewish background, it meant he was in danger in Nazi-occupied Denmark.  Heisenberg’s visit led to a fall out between the two and numerous speculations about the meeting: what did the mentor-mentee talk about? What was the reason for their fall out? And why did the Nazis lose in the race to build the atomic bomb?
