The letters which replace the question marks are

AE

Reasoning

The letters given are, in the correct order, the initials of the people in this photograph enter image description here The absent initials belong to Albert Einstein

More Explanation

This is a photo from the fifth Solvay conference in 1927 (notice how the first picture has the Roman numerals for "1", "9", "2" and "7" around the outside) which dealt with electrons and photons (the smaller things in life) and the development of quantum theory (see the equations on the blackboard from the first picture).

Title

As pointed out by parz in the comments, "Sun ~Road" must be an approximation to "Sol vie" or "Solvay"

    $\begingroup$ Sun ~Road must refer to SOLVAY (Sol + Vie, both translations), then. $\endgroup$
