By turns intellectually dazzling and deeply moving, _Copenhagen _journeys through the realm of science and beyond.

On an autumn evening in 1941, two old friends, physicists Niels Bohr and Werner Heisenberg, met for the first time since Nazi Germany invaded Denmark the previous year. Both men knew the secrets of nuclear fission, but would they use that information to build an atomic bomb? Would Heisenberg build a bomb for Hitler to protect Germany from another defeat? Would Bohr risk what he fears most—a nuclear war—to stop an even greater evil? All these questions confront the ghosts of Heisenberg, Bohr and his wife, Margrethe, who have gathered to determine what they never managed to agree about in life: Why did Heisenberg come to Copenhagen that night? Relationships split like atoms and memories become as uncertain as Heisenberg’s famous principle as the three reconstruct the evening.
