(seated left to right): Iréne Joliot-Curie (1897-1956), Niels Henrik David Bohr (1885-1962), Abram Fedorovich Ioffe (1880-1960), Marie Curie (1867-1934). (standing left to right): Frédéric Joliot-Curie (1900-1958), Werner Heisenberg (1901-1976), Hendrik Anthony Kramers (1894-1952), Ernest Stahel (b. 1896), Enrico Fermi (1901-1954), Ernest Thomas Stinton Walton (1903-1995), Paul Adrien Maurice Dirac (1902-1984), Peter Joseph William Debye (1884-1966), Nevill Francis Mott (1905-1996), and Blas Cabrera y Felipe (1878-1945). This is the left half of a group photo of the physicists attending the 1933 Solvay Conference in Brussels. The crop marks visible around Fermi's face were made by a Science Service editor. Only Fermi's image was used in a November 26, 1938, news story about how the Italian-born physicist had just been awarded the Nobel Prize in Physics.
