He is also known for the Born-Oppenheimer Approximation; the assumption that the electronic motion and the nuclear motion in molecules can be separated. Oppenheimer perished on February 18, 1967, in Princeton, New Jersey, at the age of 63. Robert impacted history with his multiple accomplishments throughout his lifetime, including his assistance with the assembly of the atomic bomb and the Born-Oppenheimer Approximation. Robert inherited his first name, Julius, from his father, Julius S. Oppenheimer. His mother 's name was Ella Friedman.
Martin Luther was a theologian, he was born in November 10, 1483, and he died on February 18, 1546. His birth and death both took place in Eisleben, Germany. Martin Luther became one of the most influential figures in Christian history when he began the Protestant Reformation in the 16th century. Hans and Margarette Luther, were of peasant linage, but Hans had some success as a miner and ore smelter. His parents intended him for a law career, but he became a monk and a theology professor instead.
Melville’s educational philosophy was focused on solving their own curiosity, unlike other parents who focus on delivering information. In Richard Feynman’s autobiography, Surely You’re Joking, Mr. Feynman, he mentions family trip went to the ‘American Museum of Natural History’, which he debated about the origin of atoms. His father started to ask questions on the basis of advanced theories. Feynman described father’s education as “enough to bring me [Feynman] to a science field”, and to be a scientist (Feynman, 16-17). After few decades, when Feynman became one of the greatest physicists and he could contribute to the popularization of quantum
“Satisfaction of one's curiosity is one of the greatest sources of happiness in life.” This is a quote by Linus Carl Pauling an American chemist who has made many beneficial scientific finding. Linus Pauling was a curious child and set off to satisfy that growing hunger for knowledge. Pauling’s curiosity in science, specifically chemistry, became one of the greatest sources of happiness in his life like he said. Pauling’s interest in science and his need to satisfy it ended him up with two Nobel Prizes in his lifetime, a rare feat. Linus Pauling curiosity of science, has jumped-started the world of modern chemistry and molecular biology and has made important advances in medical research.
In “An Argument On The Ethical Position of Slavery”, he touched down on the subject by saying, “ He attended Yale University at the age of fourteen in 1805 and graduated five years later at the age of nineteen. He studied mathematics, religious philosophy, and science of horses. He got money by painting portraits. While he was at Yale, he was also attentive at Benjamin Silliman and Jeremiah Days classes on electricity, though he still only cared for art. When he got home in 1810, his father wanted him to go on to be a book writer, so he encouraged Samuel to be a booksellers apprentice, but later changed his mind and allowed Samuel to go to London to continue studying art.
Ronstatd’s father came from a family of musicians. “In the late nineteenth century, my grandfather was the conductor of a brass band called the Club Filarmónico Tucsonense” (Simple Dreams). Often times, Linda’s father would serenade Ruth Mary Copeman Ronstad on the other hand, Linda’s mother, also went to the University of Arizona where “she was enrolled to study math and physics” (Simple Dreams). Except her family came from a background of mathematicians. “Her father was Loyd G. Copeman, a well-known inventor with the electric toaster, electric stove, rubber ice cube tray, and pneumatic grease gun to his credit” (Simple Dreams).
Benjamin franklin was born on January 17, 1706, in Boston, Massachusetts and passed away april 17, 1790. He was one of the major founding fathers of the United States. He was a very smart man. He was a leading author, printer, political theorist, politician, freemason, postmaster, scientist, inventor, humorist, civic activist, statesman, and diplomat. As a(n) inventor/scientist he is popularly known for being on the one hundred dollar bill and inventing the lightning rod,bifocals, and the franklin stove.
Enrico Fermi and Leo Szilard created the first nuclear pile in Chicago, 1942 (Roleff 54). Some of the greatest minds in physics collaborated together to create the bomb. The project was put under command of Leslie Groves, and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (Beyer 37). The amount of funding as well as political support provided to the Manhattan Project gave the researchers the ability to make technological breakthroughs at unfathomable frequencies. Only two years went by between the construction of the first nuclear reactor and the first detonation of the atomic bomb.
Josef Mengele was born March 16th, 1911 in Gunzburg, Germany. He was the eldest son of Karl Mengele. His father was the founder of a company that produced farm machinery. As he got older, he studied philosophy at the University of Munich in 1935. Two years later in 1937, he received his medical degree at Frankfurt am Main.
By the summer of 1939, Albert Einstein presented to Pres. Roosevelt, the military potential of an uncontrolled fission chain reaction. By February of the following year, $6,000 was awarded to start the research. While many of the scientists fled to America during the Holocaust, the Manhattan Project enable many exceptional scientists from Germany. The Manhattan Project was also aided by help from the UK and Canada.
Dwight D. Eisenhower was born on October 14, 1890, in Denison, Texas. His parents, David Jacob Eisenhower and Ida Stover Eisenhower. Dwight was the third of his parents seven sons; he had two older brothers, Arthur and Edgar, and three younger ones, Roy, Earl, and Milton. They all lived in a tiny house in Denison, Texas while his dad was cleaning train engines. Dwight was just a year and half old when his family moved backed to Abilene, Kansas, for his farther David could take a better job.
In 1679, Newton 's mother died which caused him to become extremely isolated for six months; he used this time to study gravity. Although Newton is best known for his work on gravity he also had many physical inventions. He is also known for the invention of calculus as well as another mathematician who they say invented it at the same time. Later on, he then published a book titled Philosophiae Naturalis Principia Mathematica which is considered to be one of the most influential books in the history of science today. Newton was elected president of Royal Society after the death of Robert Hookes in 170 3.
Julius Robert Oppenheimer, a scientist from New York, grew up in a rich household with access to the best schools. Oppenheimer was chosen by the government to work on this project and win the race towards nuclear warfare. This author states what deadly substance makes these bombs. "For example, he had moved readily from Niels Bohr 's purely scientific conjecture in the 1930s that U-235 is the fissile isotope of uranium to his own problem-solving estimate in 1941 of the amount of U-235 necessary for an effective weapon."(Erwin). From this knowledge one can see that U-235, found by Niels Bohr, can react and explode in very harmful ways.
