Ludwig Boltzmann 1844-1906

A  new play depicting Austrian physicist Ludwig Boltzmann opens this week in Birmingham. Trusting Atoms: The Last Trials of Ludwig Boltzmann by Rowena Fletcher-Wood will be performed on the 24th-27th September in the Cadbury Room on the University of Birmingham’s Edgbaston Campus.

Described as portraying Boltzmann “in his battle to save the dying theory of atoms, his equation and his career”, Trusting Atoms also features Lise Meitner, who was inspired by Boltzmann during her time at the University of Vienna in the early 20th centuary.
