Steven Weinberg, widely regarded as the preeminent theoretical particle physicist of his era, passed away on 23 July at age 88. Steve took a pivotal step toward establishing what came to be known as the standard model of the fundamental particles and their interactions, for which he shared the 1979 Nobel Prize in Physics with Sheldon Glashow and Abdus Salam. That contribution was just one highlight in a career studded with major accomplishments. In later years, Steve authored a series of highly influential physics textbooks, as well as eloquent books and essays for the general public expounding on societal and scientific issues. He remained scientifically active up to his final days.
