It was just announced that Austrian scientist Anton Zeilinger, French scientist Alain Aspect and US scientist John Clauser won The Wolf Prize in Physics, "for their fundamental conceptual and experimental contributions to the foundations of quantum physics, specifically an increasingly sophisticated series of tests of Bell’s inequalities, or extensions thereof, using entangled quantum states."
Congrats and job well done all around, career and accomplishments-wise. I like these guys.
The Wolf Prize in Physics is awarded once a year by the Wolf Foundation. It is one of the six Wolf Prizes established by the Foundation and awarded since 1978; the others are in Agriculture, Chemistry, Mathematics, Medicine and Arts. The Prize is often considered the most prestigious award in physics after the Nobel Prize
