By John Johnson, Jr.
The women and men working in physics come from many different backgrounds and many different fields. They include biophysicists, oceanographers, atmospheric scientists, journalists, and more. This book introduces students to 12 fascinating scientists working in physics today. They talk about their interests when they were growing up and the people who inspired them. They describe what they do, how they got there, and why they enjoy it. And they encourage students to think about their own interests and future careers.
