Fecha de muerte: 19. Agosto 1968

Gueorgui Antónovich Gámov , más conocido como George Gamow, fue un físico y astrónomo soviético, que trabajó en diversos temas incluyendo el núcleo atómico, la formación estelar, nucleosíntesis estelar, nucleocosmogénesis y el código genético.

„Decidí doctorarme en física experimental, porque los físicos experimentales tenían su propia habitación en el Instituto donde se podían colgar su abrigo, mientras que los físicos teóricos tenían que colgar su abrigo en la entrada.“

—  George Gamow

El nuevo breviario del señor Tompkins

„If only there were at least one film with some real adventure, something unusual and maybe even fantastic about it.“

—  George Gamow

Mr. Tompkins in Wonderland. (1939) First lines
Contexto: It was a bank holiday, and Mr Tompkins, the little clerk of a big city bank, slept late and had a leisurely breakfast. Trying to plan his day, he first thought about going to some afternoon movie and, opening the morning paper, turned to the entertainment page. But none of the films looked attractive to him. He detested all this Hollywood stuff, with infinite romances between popular stars.
If only there were at least one film with some real adventure, something unusual and maybe even fantastic about it. But there was none. Unexpectedly, his eye fell on a little notice in the corner of the page. The local university was announcing a series of lectures on the problems of modern physics, and this afternoon's lecture was to be about Einstein's Theory of Relativity. Well, that might be something!

„It is well known that theoretical physicists cannot handle experimental equipment; it breaks whenever they touch it. Pauli was such a good theoretical physicist that something usually broke in the lab whenever he merely stepped across the threshold.“

—  George Gamow

Thirty Years That Shook Physics : The Story of Quantum Theory (1966), p. 64
Contexto: It is well known that theoretical physicists cannot handle experimental equipment; it breaks whenever they touch it. Pauli was such a good theoretical physicist that something usually broke in the lab whenever he merely stepped across the threshold. A mysterious event that did not seem at first to be connected with Pauli's presence once occurred in Professor J. Franck's laboratory in Göttingen. Early one afternoon, without apparent cause, a complicated apparatus for the study of atomic phenomena collapsed. Franck wrote humorously about this to Pauli at his Zürich address and, after some delay, received an answer in an envelope with a Danish stamp. Pauli wrote that he had gone to visit Bohr and at the time of the mishap in Franck's laboratory his train was stopped for a few minutes at the Göttingen railroad station. You may believe this anecdote or not, but there are many other observations concerning the reality of the Pauli Effect!

„There was a young fellow from Trinity,
Who took the square root of infinity.“

—  George Gamow

One, Two, Three... Infinity (1947)
Contexto: There was a young fellow from Trinity,
Who took the square root of infinity.
But the number of digits, Gave him the fidgets;
He dropped Math and took up Divinity.

„So I am just sitting and waiting, listening, and if something exciting comes, I just jump in.“

—  George Gamow
