In her picture, she seems perturbed about something. Perhaps she overheard you discussing her looks instead of something she herself has accomplished.

So she's brilliant, AND gorgeous... neither should detract from the other. I don't see a lot of hunky guys in Physics either... it's a minority all over. What are the odds of being a top scientist AND having the genetics to be beautiful, not just pretty? Talk about a cosmic home run between looks, circumstances, education, and natural intelligence.

Oh come on! I count no less than 22 very sexy mustaches in this historical picture (+Marie Curie):





The question is: Why has "this picture" not changed that much in a hundred years...

You want to talk about hot? Check out her bio page at Harvard -- wow!

I think I might have seen her in the Charlie Rose interview linked to on her bio page. Very impressive to listen to!
I watched the video. For some reason, whenever she says string theory, I hear it as g-string.

Oh good one.

As for why the picture hasn't changed... well, it's taken time to place generations of women into a particular role, and it's going to take time and effort to undo that damage of millenia. It takes time to disseminate information, and in a way we're working with an initial pool which not only fails to include most women, but excludes them in a variety of ways. We need a few more generation of women becoming teachers of high-end STEM subjects before that picture really starts to change much.

We're guys jobyts... that means every thought we have takes the following path:

Sensory Input->Brain Stem->Brain->Dick->Brain->Balls->Brain.

It's a circuit that places undue emphasis on what our dangling bits have to 'think' of matters, and polls them even when you're looking at say... food, or a flower, or the sky, or nothing.

Ah being a guy, it's a joy and a bit of a burden. *braces for contradiction by PF sisterhood*

Yeah, I guess youíre right. It just that it has taken so long... and not that much has change... If you look at this picture of Amy Mainzer and the four "WISE guys"*, she is the only woman ALONE, exactly as Marie Curie!



Something must clearly be wrong, and I think we all lose in the long run. My experience is that 50/50 mixed workplaces works best...

Iím a man, thereís no use in pretending; I drop-dead too when I see a very beautiful and extremely intelligent woman. Thereís not much one can do about it.

But what if our "behavior" as men, has something to do with "the first problem"...?

Is it just me, or does the fellow on the far left have a haircut that is uncomfortably, "Hitler-esque"? Maybe it's just the angle. Anyway, we're lucky to have the women we do have, but yeah, it's hard to imagine that we're not losing out on a huge portion of our population.

The problem is that men are service oriented. We are very giving souls. We like to share.

Men are playthings, if they also have brains, it's icing on the cake.

A very beautiful woman once walked up and hit on me because, according to her, I was reading a physics book. That has to be one for the record books!

I would prefer to think she just wanted me for my body...

This was BT, of course. [before Tsu]

If they don't have brains, how can you play with them.

And yes Kurdt you are the hottest physicist alive.
