This theory provides insight into diverse nuclear phenomena ranging from ground‐state properties of nuclei and the matter in neutron stars to the dynamics of heavy‐ion collisions and spontaneous fission.
Einstein maintained that quantum metaphysics entails spooky actions at a distance; experiments have now shown that what bothered Einstein is not a debatable point but the observed behavior of the real world.
His career spanned the era in which optical astronomy achieved vast improvements in sensitivity and radioastronomy emerged as a new science; his work contributed greatly to the successful cooperation between those two fields.
Intense x‐ray synchrotron radiation, from multi‐GeV electron storage rings, is giving new life to an old technique for studying the structure of the large biological molecules that control the shape of the cell.
