2019 Nobel Prize in Physics

Congratulations to our contributing author P. James E. Peebles, of Princeton University, who won the 2019 Nobel Prize in Physics  “for theoretical discoveries in physical cosmology.” He shares it with Michel Mayor, of the University of Geneva, and Didier Queloz, also of the University of Geneva and of the University of Cambridge, who won it “for the discovery of an exoplanet orbiting a sola-type star.”

Read P.J.E. Peebles’ autobiographical article and watch him in conversation with Sandra Faber, of the University of California, Santa Cruz, who is the co-Editor of the Annual Review of Astronomy and Astrophysics:
