Caption: Kapitsa and Androv, Russian physicists. Pyotr Leonidovich Kapitsa (left, 1894-1984) is listening to a graduate student called Androv (right), who is defending his doctoral thesis. Kapitsa was born and educated in Russia, but his early work was with Rutherford in Cambridge University, England. He worked in England until 1934 when, on a visit back to the USSR, he was detained and his passport taken away. He was forced instead to work in the USSR with state funding. His share of the 1978 Nobel Prize for Physics was given for his work on low-temperature physics. The Kapitza resistance is named for him. Photographed in 1963, in Moscow, Russia .
