Franco Rasetti (1901-2001, left), Italian physicist and palaeontologist, and Peter Debye (1884-1966, right), US-Dutch physical chemist. Rasetti worked with Fermi at Rome University and was part of the group that split the atom. He moved to Canada in 1939, but refused to join Fermi on the Manhattan project for moral reasons. His disgust at the direction physics had taken lead him to turn to palaeontology and botany. Debye was instrumental in the discovery and study of the dipolar nature of some molecules. Those molecules with a positive charge on one portion of their structure and a negative charge on another may be made to align with an electrical field. This work led to his 1936 Nobel Prize for Chemistry. Photographed in Rome, Italy.Restrictions:.
