'On 17 March 1853 Christian Andreas Doppler died of a pulmonary embolism at the age of 50 in Venezia, Veneto, Italy. He was known for the Doppler Effect, the effect that produces a change in frequency or wavelength of a wave or other periodic event for an observer moving relative to its source or vice versa.
