2019 marks 150 years since Dmitri Mendeleev first published a periodic table of chemical elements in 1869. This month’s photos from our archives look at Mendeleev’s original table and shine light on a few scientists who contributed to our modern understanding of the elements.
This month, we’re featuring more photos than usual, to highlight the ten scientists who were the first women to be the presidents of AIP’s ten member societies. These women were trailblazers in their organizations and in physics history.
We have a host of meteorologists, both past and present, to thank for our ability to predict the weather and overall climate patterns. This month, we’re looking back at some photos of meteorologists from our Emilio Segrè Visual Archives.
