Physicists Blackett and Bothe. British physicist Patrick Maynard Stuart Blackett (lower left, 1897-1974) and German physicist Walther Wilhelm Georg Bothe (upper centre, 1891-1957) in Zurich, Switzerland, in 1929. Blackett, educated at Cambridge, carried out research in Europe in the late 1920s and early 1930s. He was awarded the 1948 Nobel Prize in Physics for his development in the 1920s of the Wilson cloud chamber method and his work with this method in studies of nuclear physics and cosmic radiation. Bothe, who was working at the University of Berlin in 1929, shared the 1954 Nobel Prize for Physics with Max Born for work in particle physics.
