Steven Weinberg : American Physicist And Nobel Prize Winner. The American physicist and Nobelist Steven Weinberg (1933-2021) is in many regards or considered as the preeminent theoretical physicist in the world.”

However, as a young researcher, he recieved terrible “bullied” treatment by none other than Richard Feynman.

Furthermore, in an interview for the Times Higher Education magazine (1998), he recounted these nerve-racking experiences:

“Years ago, when I was an assistant professor of physics at Berkeley [1960-66], I used to be invited down to Caltech about once a year to give a talk. 

It was usually the low point of my year. 

In the audience at Caltech were two leaders of modern physics. Murray Gell-Mann and Richard Feynman, who interrupted with frequent questions, ruthlessly probing. To see if I really knew what I was talking about and had anything new to say. 

Moreover, of the two, Feynman was the more frightening. 

Gell-Mann was mostly interested in finding out whether there was anything in my talk that he should know about, so he had no problem if I did have anything worthwhile to say, Feynman was having fun.”

Lastly, Steven Weinberg recieved his Nobel Prize for his contributions with Abdus Salam and Sheldon Glashow. To the unification of the weak force and electromagnetic interaction between elementary particles.
