The 5th Conference



In 1912 the Belgian industrialist Ernest Solvay founded “The Solvay Conference”. Located in Brussels, the conferences were devoted to outstanding preeminent open problems in both physics and chemistry. It was considered a turning point in the world of physics. The most famous conference was the October 1927 “Fifth Solvay International Conference on Electrons and Photons”. The world’s most notable physicists met to discuss the newly formulated quantum theory. The leading figures were Albert Einstein and Niels Bohr. Einstein, disenchanted with Heisenberg’s uncertainty principle, remarked “God does not play dice”. Bohr replied: “Einstein, stop telling God what to do”. This “Fifth Conference” produced the greatest meeting of minds ever, and what most probably is the most intelligent picture ever taken. It’s hard to imagine a more brilliant group of people in the same room together. 17 of the 29 attendees were or became Nobel Prize winners, including Marie Curie, who alone among them, had won Nobel Prizes in two separate scientific disciplines.
