For his role in theoretically imagining a route for nitrogen fixation, something every chemist knows as the Haber-Bosch process (realized first by English chemist Robert Le Rossignol), Fritz Haber
won the 1918 Nobel Prize for Chemistry.

The visitor in this play was, in real life, a chemist named Fritz Haber
, who would go on to win the Nobel Prize for chemistry in 1918.

We can blame all that algal bloom on Fritz Haber
. During the first decade of the 20th century, he and colleague Carl Bosch cracked a puzzle that had stumped chemists for a long time; they found a way of making artificial, nitrogen fertilizer.
Around this time, however, German scientists Fritz Haber
and Carl Bosch developed a way to convert nonreactive atmospheric nitrogen to ammonia, the reactive compound that forms the base of nitrogen fertilizer.
Particularly fascinating is the treatment of individuals: Fritz Haber
, the Nobel Laureate chemist, who developed poison gas technology for the Germans in WW I but was dismissed from his position by the Nazis because of his Jewish blood; Werner Heisenberg, the brilliant physical theorist who may have sabotaged the Nazi nuclear program (though Cornwell doubts this); Joseph Mengele, the "physician" (butcher) of Auschwitz; and Werner yon Braun, the rocket engineer who changed sides easily after the war and helped the U.S.
Inspired by a TV documentary on science and warfare,King wrote the opera about the life of German scientist Fritz Haber
, the scientist who instigated the use of gas in World War I and invented the gas that would later be used to kill 6m Jews.
