Most Iconic Scientists of History, Together

Solvay Conference

Originally captured in 1927 at the fifth Solvay Conference, one of the most star-studded meetings of scientific minds in history, the photo shows notable attendees including Albert Einstein, Niels Bohr, Marie Curie, Erwin Schrödinger, Werner Heisenberg, Wolfgang Pauli, Paul Dirac, Madame Curie and Louis de Broglie — to name a few. Of the 29 scientists in attendance (the majority of whom contributed to the fields of physics and chemistry), over half of them were, or would would go to become, Nobel laureates.
