Werner Karl Heisenberg was born on December 5, 1901.

He invented Matrix Mechanics as a formalization of quantum physics in 1925. He discovered the uncertainty principle (known in his honour as the Heisenberg Unceratinty Principle) in 1927, a fundamental principle in quantum physics.

Heisenberg received the nobel prize for physics in 1932 "for the creation of quantum mechanics, the application of which has, inter alia, led to the discovery of the allotropic forms of hydrogen".
