In 1894, physicist Albert Michelson declared that the important ideas of physics had already been found and that all that was left was to figure out the details to greater and greater precision. How wrong his idea turned out to be! Just six years later, Max Planck introduced to the world the revolutionary idea that energy was quantized and can only exist at specific levels. This discovery brought physics into the amazing, and often quirky, world of quantum physics and quantum mechanics, a field that has yielded seven Nobel Prize awards in physics in the span of 30 years!
