Morning: Steve Burton Richter

This morning’s name was Burton Richter, the Stanford physicist. That led me to a photo of Richter with a quote from him — and Google then obligingly turned up a photo of soap opera hunk Steve Burton with a quote from him.

The physicist, from Wikipedia:

Burton Richter (born March 22, 1931) is a Nobel Prize-winning American physicist. He led the Stanford Linear Accelerator Center (SLAC) team which co-discovered the J/ψ meson in 1974, alongside the Brookhaven National Laboratory (BNL) team led by Samuel Ting. This discovery was part of the so-called November Revolution of particle physics. He was the SLAC director from 1984 to 1999.


And Steve Burton, from Wikipedia:

Jack Stephen “Steve” Burton (born June 28, 1970) is an American actor best known for his portrayal of Jason Morgan on General Hospital from 1991 to 2000, briefly in 2001, and from 2002 to 2012.


Definitely an unlikely pairing.
