Niels Bohr Larger Than LifeAnna von Lowzow, Marie Breyen

Niels Bohr, one of the founders of quantum physics, helped Danish Jews escape the Nazis, collaborated on the atomic bomb and won the Nobel Prize. In this documentary, we look back on the eventful life of the founder of modern science, against the backdrop of today's society.

Never could anyone have predicted the impact of Niels Bohr and his groundbreaking model of the atom. Not only did he win no fewer than 27 Nobel prizes and provided the basis for the computational revolution, he also triggered the creation of the world's most dangerous weapon: the atomic bomb. Now, more than 100 years later, in the light of today's society, we look back at one of the greatest scientists and inventors, Niels Bohr.
