In Memoriam Steven Weinberg

Steven Weinberg who shared the 1979 Nobel Prize for Physics for his theoretical contributions to the Standard Model of particle physics, died on 23 July aged 88. After earning PhD at Princeton in 1957, Steven Weinberg has held an appointment at Columbia for two years before moving on to Berkeley and then to Harvard. While at Columbia he wrote a seminal article on 'Charge Symmetry of Weak Interactions' followed by his paper a decade later where he described how the electromagnetic force and the weak force can be treated as a single electroweak force.
