In Memoriam: Berkeley Lab Nobelist Donald Glaser

OSTI honors Nobel Laureate, Donald Glaser, who "died in his sleep Thursday morning, Feb. 28, at his home in Berkeley. Glaser, a professor emeritus of physics and of molecular and cell biology at the University of California, Berkeley, won the 1960 Nobel Prize in Physics for inventing the bubble chamber, a device that allowed scientists to track the paths of electrons, protons and other elementary particles after collisions, which led the discovery of whole families of new particles." http://t.osti.gov/iKV
