Enrico Fermi Pictures

Fermi, pg 23
In 1918, Fermi, at the age of 17, is accepted to Pisa's Scuola Normale Superiore school.
Fermi, pg 22
In 1905.At age four, Fermi poses for a picture with his other sibblings. As you can see from the picture, at an early age, Fermi was influenced and very close to Guilio, his brother.
Fermi, pg 262
Fermi poses with a machine at the University of Chicago used in making the atomic bomb after the war.

Fermi, pg 263.5
Fermi is pictured above with his wife, enjoying their free time only a year before his premature, cancer-related death.
Fermi, pg 263
The Fermis are pictured in Washington State with their son, Guilio, relaxing after the stress of the war has been lifted.
Epstein, pg 10
In 1910, Fermi, at the age of ten (right), with his brother Guilio. Giulio was a played a key role in introducing Fermi to the world of Mathematics and Science.
Epstein, pg 57
Above is the simple laboratory in Rome where Fermi and his team of researchers experimented with Uranium.
Epstein, pg 70
In 1938, Fermi was presented the Nobel Prize in Physics by King Gustavus V for  his work on Neutrons and Nuclear power. At the time, the Anti-Semitic rein of Hitler was coming to power. Fermi, seizing the moment, made arrangements with the U.S. Embassy and used the trip Sweden to recieve the Nobel Prize as a cover to leave Italy, once and for all.     
Fermi, pg 55
On July 1922, at the age of twenty one, Fermi obtained his Doctor of Philosophy Degree (Ph.D) in Physics from the Scuola Normale Superiore in Pisa, Italy.  Above, Fermi poses for a picture with one of his colleauges after the graduation ceremony.
Fermi, pg 70
Pictured above is Fermi and his famous possy of researchers, nicknamed the Corbino’s “Boys.” Besides Fermi, the most noted members of the group was Emilio Segre (second from the left.)
Fermi, pg 135
In 1938, Fermi was presented the Nobel Prize in Physics by King Gustavus V for  his work on Neutrons and Nuclear power. At the time, the Anti-Semitic rein of Hitler was coming to power. Fermi, seizing the moment, made arrangements with the U.S. Embassy and used the trip Sweden to recieve the Nobel Prize as a cover to leave Italy, once and for all.     
Fermi, pg 215
Pictured above is Fermi’s wartime house at Los Alamos, a section of the Manhattan Project. This section of Los Alamos was nicknamed  the “Bathtub Row” and was used as the housing complex for Los Alamos’s inhabitants.

After several years of dating, Enrico Fermi and Laura Fermi (Maiden Name: Laura Capon) are married on July 19,1928. Soon afterwards, they departed for their honeymoon in the Italina Alps and eventually settled in a Roman apartment paid by Laura's parents.
Fermi, pg 39
In 1928, Fermi and his wife (to the left of him) are finally married and pose for a picture with family members.
Fermi, pg 54
 In 1931, Fermi poses for a picture with his six month old daughter, Nella in front of their Italian Apartment. 
Epstein, pg 92
In 1951, Fermi built the toy trolley that went around the rim of the big cyclotron, a particle accelerator. Scientists could control trolley without getting close to the dangerous radiation emitted from the atom smasher.

 Fermi, pg 199

Pictured above is the first Atomic Pile under construction in the Squash Court: Chunks of Uranium are embedded in the Graphite bricks.

Pictured above is Fermilabs, one of the most prestigious scientific institutes in the United States. It was founded 1967 and named after Fermi in 1976. Fermilabs specializes in particle acceleration, a field in which Fermi dedicated his whole life to after the war. Moreover, Fermilabs is the National Particle Accelerator for the United States.

Pictured above are two of the few awards that Fermi was awarded for his work in Physics. The silver one is his Franklin’s medal and the gold one is his Nobel Prize.

Above is the first, finished atomic pile designed by Enrico Fermi at the University of Chicago. It is called Chicago Pile 1 and was housed under the abandoned squash court.

The researchers and builders involved in the tedious task of constructing Chicago Pile 1 are pictured above.

Fermi’s Los Alamos security badge is shown above. Fermi worked at Los Alamos during the war and helped develop the atomic bomb.

After the war, Fermi teaches at the University of Chicago. Interestingly enough, this classic picture of Fermi depicts a simple error. (h-bar and e should be switched around.)
