Exhibition celebrates creativity of Nobel laureate scientists

Steven Chu, physics, 1997

Nobel laureate scientists have made amazing breakthroughs, but most were taken aback when photographer Volker Steger gave each of them a large sheet of paper, a handful of crayons and told them, "Draw your discovery!"
