In his own words, "Theoretical physics gives me joy; writing gives me pleasure." Since 1961 he has been on the staff of The New Yorker, where he has written book reviews, profiles (Arthur Clarke and Stanley Kubrick), and articles on science and mountain climbing. His published works include four collections of his New Yorker articles. In 1964 he was awarded the Westinghouse Prize for Science Writing, he was later awarded the 1970 American Institute of Physics-U. S. Steel Foundation Science Writing Award in Physics and Astronomy for The Elusive Neutrino. The award was made for "noteworthy writing about physics and astronomy in the media of mass communications." Dr. Bernstein received his B.A., M.A., and Ph.D. degrees from Harvard University. He has been research associate at the Harvard Cyclotron Laboratory and the Institute for Advanced Study at Princeton. On aNational Science Foundation Post-Doctoral Fellowship, he traveled to Paris, Vienna, and Geneva, and has also worked as a physicist at the Brookhaven National Laboratory and the Los Alamos Scientific Laboratory. Dr. Bernstein is now professor of physics at the Stevens Institute of Technology.
