Caption: Yoichiro Nambu (born 1921, left), Japan-born US physicist, and Edward Mills Purcell (1912-1997, right), US physicist. Nambu is a theoretical physicist who won the Nobel Prize in Physics in 2008 for his work on spontaneous broken symmetry, an important concept in subatomic physics. Here, Nambu has just been presented with the 1970 Dannie Heineman Prize for Mathematical Physics. The award is presented jointly by the American Physical Society (APS) and the American Institute of Physics (AIP). Purcell, himself a famous physicist who won the 1952 Nobel Prize in Physics for his work on nuclear magnetic resonance, was present as APS President.
