#### Heisenberg

My artwork titled "Heisenberg" pays tribute to the renowned physicist who introduced the Uncertainty Principle in 1927, a groundbreaking concept in quantum mechanics. Albert Einstein, recognizing Heisenberg's significant contributions, nominated him for the Nobel Prize, which he received in 1932 at the remarkable age of 31. The Uncertainty Principle asserts that the simultaneous precise measurement of a particle's position and momentum, like that of a photon or electron, is unattainable.

#### Bohr

This Niels Bohr’s collage celebrates the life and achievements of this seminal figure in quantum physics.

He made foundational contributions to understanding atomic structure and quantum theory, for which he received the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1922. His famous atomic model proposed in 1913 was put forth in a trilogy of papers which stated that energy levels of electrons are discrete and they can jump from one energy level to another, not just hangout anywhere around the nucleus!

#### Heliocentrism

This collage showcases the achievements of Nicolaus Copernicus. He was born in Royal Prussia, which was part of Poland on February 19, 1473. He was a true renaissance man who obtained a doctorate in cannon law, studied medicine, economics, mathematics, astronomy, and languages. He is best known for his astronomical model called Heliocentrism in which the Earth and planets revolve around the sun...

#### Curie

This collage highlights the discoveries and achievements of Marie Sklodowska Curie. Born on November 7, 1867, she was a Polish and naturalized-French physicist and chemist who conducted pioneering research on radioactivity. She was the first woman to win a Nobel Prize and the first person to win two Nobel Prizes, Physics (1903) and Chemistry (1911). She was the first woman to receive a doctorate...

#### Assayer

This collage celebrates the achievements and discoveries of Galileo Galilei. Born in Pisa, Italy, on February 15, 1564, he studied at the Universities of Pisa and Padua. He is best known for his discovery of the 4 largest moons of Jupiter, proving the validity of the Heliocentric theory, and and his work on falling objects which he discovered accelerate at the same rate regardless of their size, shape, or mass (in a vacuum)...

#### Radioactive

This collage spotlights the discoveries and works of Marie Sklodowska Curie. Born on November 7, 1867, she was a Polish and naturalized-French physicist and chemist who conducted pioneering research on radioactivity. She was the first woman to win a Nobel Prize and the first person to win two Nobel Prizes, Physics (1903) and Chemistry (1911). She was the first woman to receive a doctorate...

#### Gravity

This award winning collage celebrates the groundbreaking achievements of Isaac Newton. Born December 25, 1642, in Woolsthorpe, Lincolnshire, England, he was educated at The King’s School and Trinity College, where he studied Latin, Greek, and mathematics. He is best known for his three laws of motion which governed all of physics until Einstein. His many achievements include work on gravity, calculus, economics, light, and the invention of the reflector telescope...

#### Space-Time

This collage celebrates the discoveries of Albert Einstein. He was born on March 14, 1879, in Ulm, Germany. Einstein became famous throughout the world as a genius of unparalleled magnitude. His general theory of relativity transformed the science of physics and revolutionized our understanding of the universe, space, time, gravity, predicted the existence of black holes and gravitational waves...

#### Quantum

This collage highlights the work of Richard Phillips Feynman. He was born in Queens, New York, on May 11, 1918. He is best known for his “Feynman Diagrams,” which are graphic representations of complex

mathematical expressions needed to describe interacting subatomic particles such as electrons and positrons (positive electrons). Feynman was awarded the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1965, for his fundamental work in quantum electrodynamics...

#### Superposition

This collage celebrates the work of Erwin Schrödinger. He was born in Austria on August 12, 1887. Schrödinger was a Nobel Prize-winning physicist who was famous for his seminal equation in quantum field theory, called the Schrödinger equation.This equation provided a way to calculate the wave function of a system and how it changes dynamically with time. He was also famous for statistical mechanics, thermodynamics...

#### Peace

This collage commemorates the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. He was born January 15, 1929, in Atlanta, Georgia. He was educated at Morehouse College (B.A.), Crozer Theological Seminary (B.Div.), and Boston University (Ph.D.). Dr. King was a Baptist minister and a civil rights activist who used nonviolent strategies such as sit-ins, boycotts, and protest marches to help end the legal segregation of black and brown citizens in the United States. He was pivotal to creating and ratifying the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the Voting Rights Act of 1965...

#### Trajectory

This collage celebrates the life and achievements of Katherine Johnson. She was born in White Sulphur Springs, WV., on August 26, 1918. She was an American mathematician whose calculations of orbital mechanics as a NASA employee were critical to the first and subsequent U.S. crewed spaceflights' success. Johnson's work included calculating trajectories, launch windows, emergency return paths for Project Mercury, and rendezvous paths for the Apollo Lunar Module and command module flights to the moon. She was one of the first African-American women to work as a NASA scientist...

#### Light

This collage highlights the works of James Clerk Maxwell. He was born on June 13, 1831, in Edinburgh, Scotland. He was the mathematical physicist who formulated the classical theory of electromagnetic radiation, which showed that light is alternating electrical and magnetic fields traveling through space as waves moving at the speed of light (while in a vacuum). He also created four equations called Maxwell's equations to combine electrical and magnetic forces into one force called electromagnetism.
