In 1905 Albert Einstein committed scientific heresy. He proposed that light could be thought of not as a continuous phenomenon stretching through space but as a collection of particles. Yet even after this suggestion had been finally developed into the Quantum Theory of Light, Einstein could not accept the random nature of it.
' God does not play dice with the Universe,' he said.
John Maddox discusses Einstein's disbelief of the Quantum Theory with Martin Klein , Professor of Physics and the History of Science at Yale University, and Abraham Pais , Professor of Physics at the Rockefeller University.
