Italian Scientists and Scholars of North America Foundation Award (ISSNAF)

2017
Recipient: Camilla Pacifici
Camilla Pacifici won the annual ISSNAF Award for Young Investigators in the astrophysics and chemistry category for her work on the formation of galaxies, from the Big Bang to our Milky Way. Founded in 2008 and supported by the Italian Embassy in the United States, the foundation promotes cooperation in science, academia and technology between Italian researchers and scholars who operate in North America and the world of research in Italy.

Aspen Italia Award

2017
Recipient: Francesco Tombesi (662)
The Aspen Institute Italia Award is given annually to a research project studying applied or theoretical natural sciences involving collaboration between Italian and U.S. scientists and institutions. Francesco Tombesi and coauthors Marcio B. Meléndez Hernández, Sylvain Veilleux, James N. Reeves, Christopher Reynolds (UMD) and Eduardo González Alfonso (University of Alcalá, Spain) won the 2017 award for a paper reporting observations of a powerful wind from the accretion disk of the central supermassive black hole in the active galaxy IRAS F11119+3257, which drives a large-scale molecular outflow.

John C. Lindsay Memorial Award for Space Science

2016
Recipient: Richard L Kelley (660)
Rich led the development of the Hitomi Soft X-ray Spectrometer (SXS), a technological marvel consisting of an X-ray calorimeter at the focus of a foil mirror. The SXS produced the first direct measurements of gas turbulence and bulk motions in the Perseus Cluster. The entire SXS team had contributions that far exceeded the sum of their individual efforts, producing transformational scientific results from exceptional technical achievements. The fall colloquium series will include the Lindsay Award Winner lecture, where you may hear more from Rich about this fascinating work. Congratulations to the SXS Team and hearty congratulations to Rich!
