TCB Featured Scientist

Werner Heisenberg (5 December 1901 – 1 February 1976) developed the uncertainty principle. Werner Karl Heisenburg was a bright and talented man. For one, he taught himself calculus. His name associates with his Theory of Quantum Mechanics, as well as the Principle of Uncertainty. The Principle of Uncertainty and the Theory of Quantum Mechanics play major roles in contributing to the studies of the atom of his time, as well as studies today. Werner Heisenburg, without a doubt, did not leave the world of the living without giving something for all to remember.

TCB Featured Article
Absolute zero is the zero point temperature in Kelvin and Rankine temperature scales in which there is no motion. As heat is added to the system then motion increases, and may be measured by a thermometer.

TCB Featured Element
Main article: Neon

Neon is a noble gas discovered by Sir William Ramsay, a Scottish chemist, in 1898. [1] with the help of his student, an English chemist, named Morris W. Travers. Ramsay discovered the element Neon when he chilled a bit of the atmosphere. He did this until it liquefied, then he began to warm up the liquid until it became a gas. From that gas he realized there were actually three gases, they were krypton, xenon, and Neon. After that the French engineer Georges Claude made a lamp from an electrified tube of the Neon gas in 1910. By 1915, Claude was selling his Neon light tubes to many U.S. companies.
