I Don’t Want Your…

Quite possibly the smartest photograph ever taken.

Einstein and Bohr were lifelong friends after their debates. They disagreed scientifically, but had a lot of admiration for each other. Bohr and Heisenberg were even closer friends than he and Einstein, but they distanced themselves from each other when Hitler came to power. Bohr was actively involved in smuggling Jews out of Denmark and Germany into Sweden, if I remember correctly. Heisenberg, however, remained loyal to Germany even after the Holocaust began, and tried to convince Bohr that Germany was certain to win the war. After that, they were reportedly cordial to each other, but their friendship was over and the cordiality was cold and distant.

And as long as no one watched him, Schrodinger simultaneously got along and didn’t get along with people. Yeah, I went there.
