Planck won a Nobel Prize in 1918 for his work in theoretical Physics.

1966 - This person was 69 years old when on July 1st, Medicare became available after President Johnson signed into law the Medicare Act in 1965. President Truman had received the first Medicare card since he had been the first to propose national healthcare law. insurance.
