Breakthrough Prizes in Fundamental Physics

05.03.2016
Recipients: Neil Gehrels (661), Jordan B Camp (663), Leo Pound Singer (661)
Please congratulate our scientists Neil Gehrels, Jordan Camp and Leo Singer on their receipt of a Special Award made to the LIGO team by Yuri Milner. The award is a special addition to the Breakthrough Prizes in Fundamental Physics awarded every fall. The LIGO team are receiving this award for the first detection of ripples in space time, known as gravitational waves, from the collision of two gigantic black holes. Further details are contained in the New York Times article.
