Nobel laureate Arno Penzias talks so fast that listeners can barely keep up. Switching subjects quickly, his technical and scientific mind moving faster than his mouth will speak, ideas spewing forth like a relentless Old Faithful. ",I call him our resident genius," says Chuck Newhall,, co-founder of NEA and general partner in the firm's Baltimore office. "If we're going up on a ski lift, he's explaining to me the theory of relativity and at the same time trying to analyze the mechanical function of the lift. He just lends a whole other level of experience." Penzias, a physicist by training, won the Nobel Prize in physics for work at Bell in radio astronomy in 1978. Penzias moved up the ranks at Bell, eventually becoming the company's chief scientist and heading its research operation.
