BREAKING: Nobel Prize Winning Scientist Dies

Nobel Prize winning physicist J. Robert Schrieffer has reportedly died at the age of 88.

Schrieffer is best known for his work on superconductivity, which resulted in his Nobel Prize in Physics. As a graduate student in the 1950s, he tackled the question of how electrical resistance disappears in certain materials known as superconductors, eventually discovering the prerequisites for understanding the behavior of electrons within superconductors.

Dr. Schrieffer went on to be a professor and scientist at several institutions and received the National Medal of Science in 1983.
