June is here and with it comes warm weather and opportunities to spend more time in the great outdoors. This month we are featuring photographs in our collection that depict physicists engaging in a multitude of outdoor activities.
Some of the most interesting photographs in our collection illustrate physicists participating in every day activities outside of the lab. This month we’re featuring six photographs that depict musically inclined physicists and their friends playing various instruments.
Ada Lovelace is often identified as the first computer programmer. Without computers, the physics community – and world - would be at a loss. In honor of Ada Lovelace’s birthday, we wanted to highlight some of the images from our collection of computers from the past.
This month we highlight our acquisition of the photos and letters of Sergeant Malcolm Thurgood. He was assigned to the WW II Alsos Mission, which sought intelligence on the German nuclear weapons project.
