Scientists funded by the Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC) and the Wellcome Trust at the University of Birmingham have carried out “laboratory gunfights” to show that we move faster when we react to something in our environment than we do when we initiate the action ourselves – an idea inspired by cowboy movies but in reality more useful for avoiding oncoming traffic.

Carl Friedrich Freiherr von Weizsäcker (June 28, 1912 "“ 28 April 2007) was German physicist and philosopher. He was the longest-living member of Werner Heisenberg's research team which investigated nuclear studies in Germany during World War II. Some argue whether he and the team willingly engaged in the development of a nuclear bomb for Germany, or if its failure was intentional because they did not want the Nazi regime to have nuclear weapons. Weizäcker was born in Kiel,...

Niels Henrik David Bohr (October 7, 1885 - November 18, 1962) was a Danish physicist. He made essential contributions to understanding atom structure and quantum mechanics. Born in Copenhagen, Denmark to Christian Bohr and Ellen Adler, Bohr got his doctorate at Copenhagen University in 1911. He then studied under Ernest Rutherford in Manchester, England. Based on Rutherford's theories, Bohr published his Bohr model about atom structure in 1913, introducing the theory of electrons...
