German scientist, an theoretical physicist who dominated the area of quantum theory in his day, winning the Nobel Prize in 1918. With a lifelong love of music and science, Planck earned his doctorate in 1879 on the second law of thermodynamics, and was a professor of theoretical physics. It was on 19 October 1900, at the University of Berlin that he shattered the theories of the day on radiation and light by announcing that objects that give or absorb radiation do not do so in a steady stream but in little bundles which he called "quanta."
Died 4 October 1947, Gottingen, Germany.
