    1955: Emilio Segrè, Owen Chamberlain, and the matter of antimatter

    During the fall of 1955, a blackboard at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory helped physicists Emilio Segrè and Owen Chamberlain keep track of two very important, but very different, tallies. One side of the board held the scores from that year's World Series, in which the Brooklyn Dodgers ultimately beat the Yankees. The blackboard was also where Segrè and Chamberlain kept a running tally of how many elusive antiprotons they observed after discovering the very first one.

    Emilio Segrè and Owen Chamberlain were awarded the Nobel Prize in Physics 1959 for the discovery of the antiproton
