Is this a picture of Einstein, Curie, Bohr, Schrodinger, Heisenberg, Pauli, and Planck? HOW/WHEN did this happen??

SO AWESOME.

It was the fifth meeting of the Solvay Conference (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Solvay_Conference) where the topic for the year was electrons and photons. Really focused on the quantum theory that everybody was working on. 17 of these 29 scientists won Nobel prizes, and it’s where Einstein, responding in discussion about the Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle stated “God does not play dice.” Bohr reportedly answered with “Einstein, stop telling God what to do.”

Remarkable group though, and these conferences still occur every 3 years! This years was on the theory of the quantum world, oddly enough.
