I suggest that my pal Sam Wormley
visit the following web site and analyse the
Gerlach experiment.

Folks ignorant of physics history
call the Gerlach experiment the "Stern-Gerlach experiment"

because Stern who was an assistant to Gerlach
was awarded the Nobel Prize
for the experiment in 1943,
during WWII,

because Stern was a Jew
and Gerlach was a German,

and under pressure from the Mass Media
and the Khazar Gang,

the Nobel Committee introduced politics
into the selection,
as they have many times before and since.

Historical notes - Gerlach:
"From 1915 to 1918, during the war, Gerlach did service with the German
Army. He worked on wireless telegraphy at Jena under Max Wien. He also
served in the Artillerie-Prüfungskommission under Rudolf Ladenburg.

Gerlach became a Privatdozent at the University of Tübingen in 1916. A year
later, he became a Privatdozent at the Georg-August University of Göttingen.
From 1919 to 1920, he was the head of a physics laboratory of Farbenfabriken
Elberfeld, formerly Bayer-Werke.

In 1920, he became a teaching assistant and lecturer at the Johann Wolfgang
Goethe University of Frankfurt am Main. The next year, he took a position as
extraordinarius professor at Frankfurt. It was in November 1921 that he and
Otto Stern discovered spin quantization in a magnetic field, known as the
Stern-Gerlach effect.

In 1925, Gerlach took a call and became an ordinarius professor at the
University of Tübingen, successor to Friedrich Paschen. In 1929, he took a
call and became ordinarius professor at the Ludwig Maximilians University of
Munich, successor to Wilhelm Wien. He held this position until May 1945,
when he was arrested by the American and British Armed Forces.

From 1937 until 1945, Gerlach was a member of the supervisory board of the
Kaiser-Wilhelm-Gesellschaft (KWG). After 1946, he continued to be an
influential official in its successor organization after World War II, the
Max-Planck-Gesellschaft (MPG).

On 1 January 1944, Gerlach officially became head of the physics section of
the Reichsforschungsrat (RFR, Reich Research Council) and Bevollmächtigter
(plenipotentiary) of nuclear physics, replacing Abraham Esau. In April of
that year, he founded the Reichsberichte für Physik, which were official
reports appearing as supplements to the Physikalische Zeitschrift.

From May 1945, Gerlach was interned in France and Belgium by British and
American Armed Forces under Operation Alsos. From July of that year to
January 1946, he was interned in England"

Historical notes - Stern:
Stern was born into a Jewish family (father Oskar Stern and mother Eugenia
née Rosenthal) in Sohrau (now Zory) in Upper Silesia, the German Empire's
Kingdom of Prussia (now in Poland).

Stern completed his studies at the University of Breslau in 1912 with a
doctor's degree in physical chemistry. He worked at Charles University in
Prague and later at ETH Zurich. Stern received his Habilitation at the
University of Frankfurt in 1915 and in 1921, he became a professor at the
University of Rostock, which he left in 1923 to work at the newly founded
Institut für Physikalische Chemie at the University of Hamburg.

As an experimental physicist Stern contributed to the discovery of spin
quantization in the Stern-Gerlach experiment with Walther Gerlach in
February 1922 at the Physikalischer Verein in Frankfurt am Main;
demonstration of the wave nature of atoms and molecules; measurement of
atomic magnetic moments; discovery of the proton's magnetic moment; and
development of the molecular ray method which is utilized for the technique
of molecular beam epitaxy.

He migrated to America in 1933 and became professor of physics at the
Carnegie Institute of Technology and later professor emeritus at the
University of California, Berkeley.

He was awarded the 1943 Nobel Prize in Physics, the first to be awarded
since 1939. He was the sole recipient in Physics that year, and the award
citation omitted mention of the Stern-Gerlach experiment, as Gerlach had
remained active in Nazi-led Germany.

Stern's College:
The founding of the University of Berlin in 1810 made uncertain the future
existence of the Protestant university at Frankfort on the Oder, not far
from Berlin. There was also a strong desire in Silesia for a university
embracing all faculties, and King Frederick William III gave his consent, 3
August, 1811, to a "plan for uniting the University of Frankfort with the
University of Breslau". The two universities were to be made one institution
in regard to constitution, teaching staff, endowments, property, and income.

It is interesting to see that
Stern was educated at a Christian college,
and Gerlach was an intelligent, virtuous man
who was "victimized" by the atheistic Khazar Gang,
who controlled the Russian government
and dominated the American and British Mass Media.
