    DescriptionEntertaining and accessible, this book narrates the conflict between two of the greatest intellectuals of the 20th century, Albert Einstein and Niels Bohr. After Max Planck discovered that electromagnetic radiation and the energy of light are transmitted in small packets called quanta in 1900, Bohr applied the idea to electrons, leading to the development of quantum mechanics and to the explanation of previously unexplainable experimental results. Einstein rejected Bohr's theory, and their conflict culminated at the 1927 Solway conference. This comprehensive study of years of discovery and debate is emotionally charged, exploring friendships and rivalries that survived two world wars. "Ameno y asequible, este libro relata el conflicto entre dos de los grandes intelectuales del siglo XX, Albert Einstein y Niels Bohr. Despues del descubrimiento de Max Planck en 1900 que la radiacion electromagnetica y la energia de luz se transmiten en pequenos paquetes llamados cuantos, Bohr aplico la idea a los electrones, lo cual llevo al desarrollo de la mecanica cuantica y a la explicacion de resultados experimentales previamente inexplicables. Einstein rechazo la teoria de Bohr y el conflicto entre los dos culmino en la conferencia de Solway en 1927. Este estudio exhaustivo sobre anos de descubrimiento y debate esta emocionalmente cargado, explorando amistades y rivalidades que sobrevivieron dos guerras mundiales. "
