We will discuss the motivation for the development of the theory and introduce the main concepts and their observational consequences. We will demonstrate that experiments firmly agree with the predictions of the theory. We will learn what quantum mechanics implies for the structure of atoms, molecules and solids and show some of the deep puzzles that quantum mechanics poses.
