A true great Dane

The Danish physicist Niels Bohr made foundational contributions to understanding atomic structure and quantum mechanics. He received the Nobel prize in Physics and played a significant role in advocating the peaceful use of nuclear energy and the mass rescue of the Jews from Denmark. Bohr has been described as one of the most influential scientists of the 20th century.
