Caption: Ben Mottelson and family, 1958. From left, US-born Danish nuclear physicist Ben Roy Mottelson (born 1926), his first wife Nancy Jane Mottelson (nee Reno), and their sons Malcolm (born 1950) and Daniel (born 1953). The couple, who married in 1948, also had a daughter Martha (born 1954). They are in the Alps, at the Les Houches Summer School, France. Mottleson spent most of his career in Copenhagen, Denmark, at the Institute for Theoretical Physics. He was jointly awarded the 1975 Nobel Prize in Physics for his work on theories of atomic nuclei. Nancy Mottelson was aged just over 40 when she died of cancer in 1975, a few days before her husband's Nobel Prize was announced. Photographed in 1958.
