View Full Version here: : 100 years of the quantum revolution.
Couldn't help but put this up.
It is a fascinating article on the beginnings of the quantum revolution.
The photo is priceless; a who's who of famous physicists.
With the recent possible discovery of the Higgs boson, the struggle for a broad model continues today.

... and would seem at times, to be as precariously balanced, as it has been at many times throughout the history of the Solvay Council.
Yep Rob ... great photo (love the big moustaches, too).
We should remember that the 3 sigma level is by no means, firm ground to overhaul anything in particular. Such low levels of significance in particle physics, have bitten the dust before ...
I have a feeling the main focus will be on the tenuous results (similar to the FTL/Neutrino exercise), as opposed to scrutiny of the theory.
We'll see, I suppose.

I didn't even notice she was a she !

Must admit, I didn't notice the one guy without the moustache.
He must have been a real rebel!
