<H3>The History Of 20th Century Science</H3>
This famous image depicts most of the influential scientists of the first half of the 20th century. It is, essentially, the history of 20th century science in a picture.
The image was taken during the Solvay Conference
in Brussels Belgian in 1927. Of the 29 people depicted, 17 won Nobel prizes (at least once).
It was during this conference that the following, oft-quoted exchange took place:Einstein: "God does not play dice."Bohr: "Einstein, stop telling God what to do."
