linuxwrangler (582055) writes "Nobel winning physicist Norman Ramseydied Saturday at age 96. It was Ramsey's research that led to the atomic clock which moved mankind beyond astronomical observations and mechanical timepieces and provided the accuracy necessary for physicists to test the theory of relativity and engineers to develop the global positioning system. The same research led to development of magnetic-resonance imaging.
Ramsey also helped create Brookhaven National Laboratory where he served as the first Chairman of its Physics Department and was instrumental in the founding of Fermilab."
