Emilio Segre (1905-1989, left) and Edoardo Amaldi (1908-1989), Italian physicists, in front of a cyclotron magnet. Both studied with Enrico Fermi at the University of Rome. Amaldi carried out pioneering work on cosmic rays and was integral to the founding of the Italian National Institute for Nuclear Physics, CERN (the European particle physics laboratory) and what was to become the European Space Agency (ESA). Segre joined Fermi on the Manhattan project. He won the 1959 Nobel Prize for Physics with Owen Chamberlain, for the discovery of the antiproton.
