Who is this scientist?

    Hi to you all!
    I don't remember the name of a scientist of late '800, who said that we were arriving to the end of the physics, because just little experiments to solve, and then we would have known all about the physics. But that little experiments would have originated QM and relativity.

    Who is this person?

    1800s, not "Late '800"!

    I always thought this was a bit unfair on Kelvin since the same year he published "Nineteenth-Century Clouds over the Dynamical Theory of Heat and Light" which (sort of) predicted relativity and QM (or at least the need for them).
