Raymond Davis
Birth: Oct. 14, 1914
Death: May 31, 2006

Chemist and Nobel Prize recipient. Born in Washington, DC, he shared the 2002 Nobel Prize for Physics with Masatoshi Koshiba and Riccardo Giacconi. His arduous experiments spanning 30 years deep in the mines of Ohio and South Dakota proved the existence of neutrinos, tiny, elusive particles produced by nuclear reactions on the sun. His project experiments provided the final, conclusive evidence that the sun is, indeed, powered by nuclear fusion. His persistance provided the inspiration for the continuing experiments of the extensive research project and resulted in the driving force that kept it alive and well for over 30 years. Died in Blue Point, on Long Island, New York. (bio by: Fred Beisser)
