Caption: Donald Menzel (left), Albert Einstein (centre) and George Birkhoff (right), US scientists, with Harlow Shapely's son Carl. Menzel (1901-1976) was an astronomer and among the first theoretical astrophysicists. Einstein (1879-1955) is famous for his mass-energy equation resulting from his 1905 paper on Special Relativity. This paper, with his 1915 General Theory of Relativity, replaced the previously unshakeable Newtonian world view, rewriting the concepts of gravity, space and time. Birkhoff (1884-1944) was a mathematician that proved, using Einstein's work, that black holes could result from any spherical star of sufficient mass. Photograph taken at Harvard University, Cambridge, Massachusetts, USA, on the occasion of Einstein receiving an honorary degree.
