Physicists – Scientists with Style
November 9, 2008
I’ve always been intrigued by physicists and mathematicians, not only because of their revolutionary breakthroughs in their field, but because of their nonchalant way of dressing. Has anyone really considered scientists stylish? Most people don’t; but I definitely do. Check out the pictures below. Anyone that can write an equation that spans the entire length of a chalkboard definitely gets a thumbs up in my book; and the best part is that some of these guys invented those equations!
J. Robert Oppenheimer - Head of the Manhattan Project. Check out the links and french cuffs - probably smudged with ink from writing all of those equations; definitely an extra coolness factor!
Theoretical Physicist Erwin Schrodinger - Discovery of Schrodinger's Equation
Physicist John Bardeen - two time winner of the Nobel Prize in Physics & co-inventor of the transistor in 1956
Physicist Louis Alvarez - 1968 Nobel Prize winner & inventor of the Asteroid Impact Theory and the Jet Recoil Theory
Physicist Edwin Mcmillan - First to produce a transuranium element and winner of the 1951 Nobel Prize in chemistry
Edward Percell - Winner of the 1952 Nobel Prize for the discovery of Nuclear Magnetic Resonance. He's also pretty damn good at tying a bowtie
Wolfgang Pauli - Discovery of the Exclusion Principle and noted for his work on the Spin Theory
