Three scientists — Michel Mayor, Didier Queloz and James Peebles — were announced as the winners of the Nobel during Stockholm ceremony.
BREAKING NEWS: The 2019 #NobelPrize in Physics has been awarded with one half to James Peebles “for theoretical discoveries in physical cosmology” and the other half jointly to Michel Mayor and Didier Queloz “for the discovery of an exoplanet orbiting a solar-type star.”
2019 #NobelPrize laureate James Peebles took on the cosmos, with its billions of galaxies and galaxy clusters. His theoretical framework, developed over two decades, is the foundation of our modern understanding of the universe’s history, from the Big Bang to the present day.
“My advice to young people entering science: you should do it for the love of science … You should enter science because you are fascinated by it” - newly awarded laureate James Peebles speaking at today’s press conference announcing his #NobelPrize in Physics.
