MAKSIMOVIC. THE STORY OF BRUNO PONTECORVO
On September 1, 1950, at the dawn of the Cold War, the italian physicist Bruno Pontecorvo and his family mysteriously disappeared. This created a real political earthquake in Europe and the USA. The story of his disappearance is one of the most fascinating mysteries related to the atomic era, especially when it became known that he had crossed the Iron Curtain and moved to Soviet Union.
Bruno Pontecorvo is the scientist that, more than anyone else, has entered the secrets of the most elusive and enigmatic particle of our universe: the neutrino.
