100th anniversary of John Bardeen birth this Friday, May 23, 2008

John Bardeen was an American physicist, a Midwesterner, who revolutionized the World twice. He was awarded one Nobel Prize for inventing the transistor and his second Nobel Prize for explaining the phenomenon of superconductivity. Thus he is the only person in history to win two Nobel Prizes in Physics. John Bardeen was known for his modesty. For example, he was a member of a golf club in Urbana (IL) where many of his friends would not know about him being a Nobel Prize winner.
