Caption: US physicists at Brookhaven Summer School, Brookhaven National Laboratory, New York, USA, 1965. From left to right, the US physicists performing headstands on the beach are: Norton Mark Hintz (1922-2016), Harry Edmund Gove (1922-2009), and Ben Roy Mottelson (born 1926). At the time, Hintz was at the University of Minnesota, Gove was at the University of Rochester, and Mottelson was at the Institute for Theoretical Physics, Copenhagen, Denmark. In this humorous scene, the three physicists are said to be 'spin down state' after lectures, a reference to the quantum property of spin for nuclear particles. Mottelson was awarded a share of the 1975 Nobel Prize in Physics. Photographed in the summer of 1965.
