我以前挺崇拜Weinberg,因为知道他是大牛,还因为当年读过他的《Dreams of a Final Theory》和《The First Three Minutes》。他和Glashow同于1979年获NOBEL。后来听说他们两个中学是同学大学是同学在哈佛是同事然后一起获NOBEL。也真够传奇的。    

Glashow和Weinberg所在的中学是The Bronx High School of Science。据Andrew Zimmerman Jones说这个学校从1938年开办以来,居然出了7个诺贝尔奖获得者他们是:

  • Roy Glauber (class of 1942) – 2005 Nobel for the development of quantum optics
  • Leon Cooper (class of 1943 – estimated) – 1972 Nobel for work in superconductivity
  • Melvin Schwartz (class of 1948 – estimated) – 1988 Nobel for discovery of the muon neutrino
  • Sheldon Glashow & Steven Weinberg (class of 1950) – shared the 1979 Nobel for the discovery of electroweak interactions (along with Abdus Salam)
  • David Politzer (class of 1966) – 2004 Nobel for discovery of asymptotic freedom
  • Russell Hulse (class of 1966) – 1993 Nobel for discovering first binary star    看来中学时就对学生进行科学训练是有好处的。我特怀念我初中的一些老师特别是数学纪敏顶老师。我喜欢科学跟他们是有关系的。
