“Prediction is very difficult, especially if it’s about the future.”

Today’s Google Doodle celebrates the 127th birthday of Niels Bohr, a major quantum physicist, contemporary and friend of Einstein, who I must admit I am aware of only by reputation. I do like his quotes though. Some of them are decidedly Doctor-y.

“We are all agreed that your theory is crazy. The question which divides us is whether it is crazy enough to have a chance of being correct.”

Adventure hooks? Possibly... fleeing the Nazis and working on the Manhattan Project seem like good places to start.
