"Pick a flower on Earth 🌎 and you move the farthest star." Paul Dirac, English theoretical physicist who shared 1933 Nobel w/ Schrodinger. Einstein wrote of him "I have trouble with Dirac. This balancing on the dizzying path btw genius & madness is awful." My first daffodils:

WHHAAATTTT Paul Dirac went to junior school in Bristol with Archibald Leech (Cary Grant)

To my shame, I didn't know who Paul Dirac was until today (even tho my 14 yr old did). This is a wonderful run through the life and ideas of one of Britain's greatest geniuses. Truly our own Einstein. #worththelicencefeealone

In developing quantum mechanical theory, physicist Paul Dirac predicted that all matter has a kind of mirror image - antimatter. Dirac's theory would later be proved experimentally. He was awarded the #NobelPrize  in 1933 which he shared with Erwin Schrödinger.

BREAKING: A motorcyclist has been killed in an accident near the intersection of West Orange Avenue and Paul Dirac Drive. All lanes are currently closed. AVOID THE AREA.

Carl David Anderson, the physicist and Nobel laureate was born #OnThisDay  in 1905. He worked to investigate cosmic rays & during his experiment he identified a particle that had been predicted by Paul Dirac FRS. This was the positron, the antimatter counterpart of the electron.

In 1928 Paul Dirac, born #OTD , formulated the Dirac equation. The equation gave solutions that he interpreted as being caused by a particle equivalent to the electron, but with a positive charge. This particle, the positron, was later confirmed through experiments.
