Reading through Physics Today (as I'm wont to do on occasion) I came across this absolutely enthralling article on Wolfgang Pauli of whom I've never heard. Truly an admirable specimen among Physicus Intellectus. Also, it behooves me to mention "A Remembrance of Pauli in 1950."

Thanks for the Pauli posting, Kenny; he looks interesting. I'll print those articles and read them tonight.

Never heard of Pauli?? Pauli exclusion principle? You need to start reading immediately! Start with Rhodes, "Making of the Atomic Bomb", the first half is a great summary of physics developments in the first third of the 20th century. One of the outstanding accomplishments of the human race. The article in PT didn't say much about Pauli's famous curtness: "Well, maybe your idea is not completely stupid."
