25 years ago, the comet Shoemaker-Levy 9 crashed into Jupiter. Torn apart by the huge planet's tidal forces, the comet impacted between 16 and 22 July 1994. Here it is in infrared. The impact is in the bottom left, the moon Io on the right. 📷: Max Planck Institute for Astronomy

Marie Curie in conversation with French physicist Henri Poincaré, Max Planck in the back and to the left Albert Einstein. This picture taken in 1911 from the first of several Solvay Conferences features eight scientists that already had or would be awarded Nobel Prizes.
#OnThisDay in 1900, Max Planck produced his law of black body emission (Planck’s law). Planck's law (colored curves) accurately described black body radiation and resolved the ultraviolet catastrophe (black curve) a prediction of late 19th/early 20th century classical physics.
#Didyouknow 100 years ago Max Planck, the father of quantum physics, was awarded the Nobel Prize in Physics for his discovery of energy quanta
