Klaus Hasselmann is a freshly released Nobel Prize winner. He was the director of the Max Planck Institute for Meteorology and is undoubtedly an outstanding physicist. But today we will not introduce his great academic achievements, but talk about what kind of arrogant genius he is.
He was born in an ordinary family, and when he was a teenager, he went to work in a machinery factory. After finding that he was doing well in his studies, he worked hard and got his PhD in only two years. Later, he became a professor and made the students self-doubt to become a pastor.
The material for this article comes from Interview mit Klaus Hasselmann am 15. Februar 2006 (authors Hans Von Storch, Dirk J Olbers). All pictures are also from this interview.
