Caption: Members of the team that discovered the omega minus particle in February 1964 at the Brookhaven National Laboratory, Long Island, New York. The group are posed beside the 80-inch (200 cm) liquid hydrogen bubble chamber where the discovery was made. From top to bottom, they are: Ralph P. Shutt, Jack E. Jensen, Medford S. Webster, William A. Tuttle, William B. Fowler, Donald P. Brown, Nicholas P. Samios. The omega-minus particle had been predicted in 1962 by Murray Gell-Mann, & its discovery confirmed the scheme developed by him & independently by Yuval Ne'eman to classify the subatomic particles. The scheme was called by Gell-Mann the "Eightfold Way".
