Caption: Werner Heisenberg as a young child (right) with his elder brother and his grandfather in Bavaria, Germany, around 1903. Heisenberg (1901-1976) was a founder of quantum physics, being awarded a Nobel Prize in 1932 for his matrix mechanics version of the theory of quantum physics. He developed the Uncertainty Principle in 1927. This stated that the more precisely the position of a sub-atomic particle is measured, the less precisely its momentum is known. It replaced cause and effect with statistical probability.
