Caption

Scottish physicist Ronald Drever (1931-2017, left), American physicist John Wheeler (1911-2008, centre) and physicist Edward Fry, at a meeting of the American Physical Society. Drever co-founded the LIGO project, which detected gravitational waves in 2015, 100 years after they were predicted by Einstein. Wheeler is most famous for coining the term "black hole". He was also a pioneer in the theory of nuclear fission, and worked on the Manhattan Project, which developed the atom bomb during World War II. Photographed in Washington DC, USA, in April 1979.
