John Stewart Bell Biography
Birthday: June 28, 1928 (Cancer)
Born In: Belfast, Northern Ireland
It is often said that physicists are usually of two types, the first type are the ones who delve into nature and study it like a book and the second type are the ones who write the book of nature. John Stewart Bell fell in the first category and his work reflected his conservative nature. Determined to be a scientist at a very young age, Bell probably traversed the entire academic spectrum of Physics and then moved to the Mecca of quantum physics—CERN, Geneva—with his wife Mary Ross. It was his knack for novel ideas and an immense knowledge of theoretical and practical physics which made him one of the greatest scientists the world has ever seen. A little conservative, Bell never liked unconventional and speculative suggestions. After years of dedicated research, he arrived at the infamous ‘Bell’s theorem’ which challenged the theories of Einstein and other famous physicists. He was also known for his work in Superdeterminism, Chiral anomaly and Quantum entanglement. A pioneer in the field of quantum physics, Bell is remembered for his unmatched contribution to the world of science.
