One of the many women who, in a different world, might have won the physics prize in the intervening 55 years is Sau Lan Wu. The discovery, in 1974, was known as the November Revolution, a coup that led to the establishment of the Standard Model of particle physics. Sau Lan Wu was born in occupied Hong Kong during World War II. Quanta Magazine joined Sau Lan Wu on a gray couch in sunny Cleveland in early June. She had just delivered an invited lecture about the discovery of gluons at a symposium to honor the 50th birthday of the Standard Model.
