Submission + - Nicola Cabibbo dies aged 75 (physicsworld.com)

Marianne013 writes: Nicola Cabibbo who at least in the particle physics community (though not by the Nobel prize committee) is considered one of the main contributors on understanding the weak interaction of quarks died August 16th. His (perceived) snub by the Nobel Prize committee in 2008 caused considerable uproar in the particle physics community at the time though he never commented.
He was also president of the Pontifical Academy of Sciences .
