Caption: Lev Davidovich Landau (1908-1968), Soviet physicist, talking while out for a walk. Landau, born in Azerbaijan, made important contributions to quantum mechanics, diamagnetism, superconductivity and plasma physics. In 1962 he received the Nobel Prize in Physics for his work on superfluidity and liquid helium. From 1937 to 1962 he led a theoretical research institute that is now called the Landau Institute for Theoretical Physics in his honour. He was severely injured in a car crash in 1962, and never fully recovered, dying six years later. Photographed in Russia, in 1963.
