Physicist Jhon Weheeler

Carlos Mora Vanegas was one of the great figures and scientist of the physics Jhon Weheeler, who was making the questions are why matter?, why the universe?, why us?. In the words of Max Tegmark, of the University of Pennsylvania cosmologist, the creativity of Wheeler, made that physics would be fun, and more if this is accompanied by pyrotechnics, as Josep Emili Areas the journal wrote it the nation of Buenos Aires writes a very interesting note thereon, where noted, John A. Wheeler, was a visionary physicist who helped develop the theory of nuclear fissionIt gave black holes their name and argued about the nature of reality with Albert Einstein and Niels Bohr, died in the Sunday morning last of pneumonia at his home in Hightstown, New Jersey, at the age of 96. s/’>Adidas has to say. John Archibald Wheeler was born on 9 July 1911 in Jacksonville, Florida. He was the eldest son of a family of librarians and obtained his PhD at the Johns Hopkins University at age 21. A year later, after compromising with an old friend, Janette Hegner, after only three appointments, he traveled to Copenhagen to work with Bohr, father of the quantum revolution, which had shaken the foundations of modern science with paradoxical statements about the nature of reality. Participant in the Manhattan project, regretted not having been able to change the course of the war to save his brother Joe, who died in combat in Italy in 1944. It was Wheeler and a student, Hartland Snyder, who suggested that Einstein’s equations held an apocalyptic prediction.

They suggested that a star of sufficient mass could collapse into a point so dense that not even light could escape. In the Centre, the space would be infinitely curved and matter would be infinitely dense, an apparent absurdity known as singularity. During a Conference in New York, in 1967, Wheeler coined the name of black hole to designate this dramatic possibility for the Star and for physics. .
