A genius and one of the few popular stars in his chosen field, the pictured gentleman had once famously remarked,
"Science is the belief in the ignorance of experts."
Identify him.
You can leave your responses as comments to the post. The comments will be moderated for a period of 24 hours. Alternatively, you can also mail your answer to shovon76[at]gmail[dot]com. The answer, along with the names of the persons with the right answer, will be published tomorrow.
Answer: The answer to the question is Richard Feynman. Feynman had, on another occasion, famously said, "There are only a couple of persons that I know of, who understand Quantum Mechanics. Albert Einstein is one of them. The other is yours truly." His semi-autobiographical books include Surely You’re Joking, Mr. Feynman! and What Do You Care What Other People Think?
Congratulations to Anindya Mozumdar and Shibojyoti Chowdhury for getting the answer right.
