Caption: Murray Gell-Mann (born 1929), US physicist. Gell-Mann studied at Yale and MIT. In 1953, he introduced a new quantum property, strangeness, to explain the strong nuclear force that holds atomic nuclei together. His later classification system for subatomic particles successfully predicted the existence of a new particle, the omega-minus. With Zweig, in 1964, he postulated quarks as being the fundamental constituents of particles such as protons and neutrons. This work led to Gell-Mann being awarded the 1969 Nobel Prize in Physics. He has also been awarded the Dannie Heineman Prize (1959) and the Albert Einstein Medal (2005).Restrictions:
