You keep picking Nobel Prize winners, I’ll keep running to Wikipedia to find obituaries for them. Manfred Eigen escaped from a Soviet prisoner of war camp in 1945 and walked on foot to the University of Göttingen, where he became part of the first post-Nazi student intake. He was awarded the Nobel Prize for Chemistry (along with George Porter and Ronald Norrish, both dead now so you can’t pick them next year) for his work on measuring fast chemical reactions. He was also a member of the Pontifical Academy of Sciences, which, for an atheist, is pretty impressive going. He’ll now discover if he made the right choice, after dying at the age of 91.
