Caption: Patrick Maynard Stuart Blackett (1897-1974), British physicist and Nobel laureate. Blackett was educated at Cambridge University and worked there and in Manchester and London. Blackett was awarded the 1948 Nobel Prize for Physics. The Nobel was awarded for Blackett's development of the Wilson cloud chamber method and his work with this method in studies of nuclear physics and cosmic radiation. Blackett was the first person to photograph nuclear collisions involving one element changing into another. With Occhialini, he adapted a Wilson cloud chamber, a device that allows the path of ions formed by ionizing radiation to be seen, and, in 1933, took the first photograph of a positron. Blackett was made a Baron in 1969.
