Image of the Day: 29 iconic scientists all in one photo

In 1927, twenty-nine scientists gathered at the fifth Solvay Conference. That's a lot of mental bandwidth all in one place, and now a user on Reddit has given the venerable photo a little modern love.

Reddit user mygrapefruit transformed this black-and-white print of Albert Einstein, Niels Bohr, Marie Curie, Erwin Schrödinger, Werner Heisenberg, Wolfgang Pauli, Paul Dirac, Louis de Broglie and many more into a "colorized photo," so we could get a better idea of what this scene would have looked like in person.

More than half of this impressive bunch would go on to become Nobel laureates, though Marie Curie would go on to be the first woman to win a Nobel Prize, the only woman to hold two, and the only person on Earth to claim multiple such awards in areas of science.
