Description: Near the end of the nineteenth century, the story has it, a famous physicist stated very publicly that physics had advanced to the point where essentially all the laws of nature were understood. He claimed that the only thing that physicist could look forward to was increasing the accuracy of their measurements. The twentieth century was to be the century of the engineer, the time for taking those known laws of physics and using them to design new devices and refine old ones. After 1900, physicists would simply spend their years finding already known values to one more significant figure. This book shows just how wrong that physicist was. The radically new modern physics of relativity and quantum mechanics first began to be understood within the first five years of the twentieth century.
