Murray Gell-Mann, the Nobel-winning physicist who brought order to the universe by helping discover and classify subatomic particles, has died. He was 89.

Gell-Mann died on Friday at his home in Santa Fe, New Mexico. His death was confirmed by the Santa Fe Institute, where he held the title of distinguished fellow, and the California Institute of Technology, where he taught for decades. The cause was not disclosed.

In 1969, Gell-Man was honored with the Nobel prize in physics “for his contributions and discoveries concerning the classification of elementary particles and their interactions”.

Born and raised in New York City, Gell-Man received his bachelor’s degree in physics from Yale in 1948 and his PhD from Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 1951.
