    Full Size Picture
    Making up this picture of Albert Einstein are the pictures of 21 famous physicists. How many can you name?
    In alphabetical order the last names of these physicists contain this many letters:8,5,4,13,5,5,5,7,5,7,7,8(4-4),10,6,11,5,6,10,11,5,5
    Hint: Some are mathematicians and some are physicists and some are greater than others, but all are well known. Or should be.
    the first letter of each last name is:A,B,B,C,C,D,E,F,F,F,G,G,H,N,O,P,P,R,S,T,V

    Nice, but I think the list showing the first letter and the number of letters made it too easy. I had to confirm some guesses using Google for images of that person.

    Here's what I got:
    Avogadro
    Bethe
    Bohr
    Chandrasekhar
    Curie
    Dirac
    Euler
    Faraday
    Fermi
    Feynman
    Galileo
    Gell-Mann
    Heisenberg
    Newton
    Oppenheimer
    Pauli
    Planck
    Rutherford
    Schrodinger
    Tesla
    Volta

    I wouldn't have put the list with the letters, but no one was attempting without it.
