Burton Richter, Nobel Prize-winning physicist, dies at 87

Burton Richter, an American physicist who shared the 1976 Nobel Prize for discovering a subatomic particle — the curiously named “charm quark” — that became a foundation stone of the modern understanding of matter at its deepest levels, has died. He was 87.<p>His death in Palo Alto on July 18 was …
