Caption: Emilio Segre (1905-89), Italian physicist and Nobel Laureate. Segre was educated in engineering at Rome, but in 1927 his interest turned to physics. His doctorate was obtained whilst assistant to Fermi. In 1938 he moved to the University of California at Berkeley. Segre was involved in the discovery of three elements, technetium, astatine and plutonium. After work on the Manhattan Project during the war, Segre joined the hunt for the antiproton which had been predicted by Dirac. In 1955, the Bevatron accelerator at Berkeley produced sufficient collision energies for antiprotons to be seen, and Segre won the 1959 Nobel Prize for Physics.
