"Dr. Hadiyah-Nicole Green is one of fewer than 100 black female physicists in the country, and the recent winner of $1.1 million grant to further develop a technology she’s pioneered that uses laser-activated nanoparticles to treat cancer. Green, who lost her parents young, was raised by her aunt and uncle. While still at school, her aunt died from cancer, and three months later her uncle was diagnosed with cancer, too."

“There are children playing in the streets who could solve some of my top problems in physics, because they have modes of sensory perception that I lost long ago.” -- J. Robert Oppenheimer (American theoretical physicist) Photo: Oppenheimer at home with son Peter and daughter Toni.
J. Robert Oppenheimer, 1944. American theoretical physicist and professor of physics at the University of California, Berkeley. Along with Enrico Fermi, he is called the "father of the atomic bomb" for his role in the WW II project that developed the first nuclear weapons. The first atomic bomb was detonated on 1945, in New Mexico; Oppenheimer remarked later that it brought to mind words from the Bhagavad Gita: "Now I am become Death, the destroyer of worlds."
