Portraits of Physicists, by Miriam Carothers

                This series captures an era in Theoretical Physics through the faces of the Protagonists: some of them are the Pioneers, who laid down the ground for string theory by uncovering the mathematics that describes the world; then comes the New Generation, who after the Second Superstring Revolution […]
