Despite the political upheavals of the 1930s, the decade played a pivotal role in Hans Bethe’s life.

Physics Today 58 (10), 44–47 (2005); https://doi.org/10.1063/1.2138419

Half a century after he explained how the Sun shines, Hans Bethe addressed the problem of why we see too few of its neutrinos.
