Martin Schwarzschild being interviewed in 1977
By Hamish Johnston
If you’d like to listen to Werner Heisenberg compare the physics prowess of Arnold Sommerfeld, Max Born, and Niels Bohr , just click here and you will be taken to the new online Oral Histories section at the Niels Bohr Library & Archives.
The American Institute of Physics — which runs the library — has unveiled a vast online archive of interviews with some of the 20th century’s most prominent physicists.
A word of warning about the site: I found that many of the links didn’t work — and I could not actually listen to Heisenberg and company (this could be a problem with my browser). But it’s worth persevering.
