Caltech seems to have an ongoing love affair with one of the hottest physicists, ever: Richard Feynman. Nary a Caltech publication is printed without some mention of Feynman. Understandably, since the man was not only brilliant but s-e-x-y and, towards the end of his life, he was downright dashing. I have yet to meet a female physicist who didn't have a preference for Feynman, so it makes sense that Caltech really hasn't gotten over losing him.
In honor of Caltech and their heartbreak I give you a quote from Feynman:
Physics is like sex. Sure, it may give some practical results, but that's not why we do it.
How could you not love the man?
