13149 Heisenberg           Discovered 1995 Mar. 4 by F. Borngen at Tautenburg.
Werner Karl Heisenberg (1901-1976) was co-founder of quantum theory, formulated the uncertainty principle, worked in nuclear physics and cosmic radiation and tried to define a unified field theory. He also explained sociopolitical problems in popular publications. He received the Nobel prize for physics in 1932.
