Caption: Yoichiro Nambu (born 1921, left), Japan-born US physicist, receiving the 1986 Dirac Medal of the ICTP (International Centre for Theoretical Physics). The award is being presented by German physicist Herwig Franz Schopper (right, born 1924), Director General of CERN from 1981 to 1988. Pakistani physicist Abdus Salam (1926-1996, middle) was the founder of the ICTP. 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. Salam won the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1979 for his work on the electroweak theory. Photographed at the ITCP on 23 July 1987.
