Caption: Steven Weinberg (born 1933), US physicist. Weinberg studied at Cornell University, New York, USA, and received his PhD from Princeton University, USA, in 1957. Together with Glashow and Salam, in the late 1960s, he proposed the initial theory of electroweak interactions, a unification of two of the fundamental forces of nature. This work won the three of them the 1979 Nobel Prize in Physics. He is also a well-known popular science writer. His books include The First Three Minutes (1977), an account of the origin of the universe, explaining the Big Bang theory and other aspects of modern cosmology. He has also written and spoken about Israel, particle physics research, and religion and atheism.
