A Badass Photo That Includes All The Giants Of Physics

  • Via Pourmecoffee, this photo includes the likes of Niels Bohr (who added to our understanding of quantum mechanics and atomic structure), Marie Curie (who pioneered research on radioactivity), Paul Dirac (who worked on quantum mechanics and quantum electrodynamics), Werner Heisenberg (who, in addition to devising an uncertainty principle, cooks up a mean batch of meth. Just kidding), Erwin Schrödinger (he of the famous cat), and, of course, Albert Einstein. The photo was taken at the 1927 Solvay Conference which, according to Wikipedia, has "been devoted to outstanding preeminent open problems in both physics and chemistry."
