I think I'm addicted to AMVs o.o;; Can't get...mamboleo out of head...
It's like a short stripper act! XD
Campus Celebration for Nobel Prize Winners, Tuesday, October 16, 3:00 p.m., on
WIEMAN AND CORNELL WIN 2001 NOBEL PRIZE IN PHYSICS
Distinguished Professor Carl E. Wieman of the University of Colorado at
Boulder and Senior Scientist Eric A. Cornell of the National Institute of
Standards and Technology today received the 2001 Nobel Prize in physics.
The prize also was awarded to Wolfgang Ketterle of the Massachusetts
Institute of Technology.
Wieman said he heard about the award from his brother at about 4 a.m.
have an unlisted number, as does Eric, and so my brother saw it on the Internet
and called me up and that's how I found out.
"This is a tremendous thrill because this is the highest award that a
scientist can achieve for his or her work," Wieman said.
discovered that I wasn't as excited about this as when we actually achieved
Bose-Einstein condensate. That was the ultimate thrill. At least in this
case, I had an idea what might be coming."
Wieman is teaching a physics class for non-scientists, primarily made up of
CU-Boulder freshmen, at 11 a.m. today.
"I really have to have this class because they've got a test coming
Wieman, 50, is a distinguished professor of physics and has taught at
CU-Boulder since 1984. Cornell, 39, is a senior scientist at NIST and an
adjoint professor of physics at CU-Boulder. Both are fellows of JILA, a joint
institute of CU-Boulder and NIST.
"I was thrilled to hear the news," Cornell said. "It is
gratifying to be recognized for this work. It is a wonderful thing for NIST and
the University of Colorado, and it is very appropriate and an honor to share
this award with my good friends Carl and Wolfgang ."
Wieman and Cornell were cited for their landmark 1995 creation of the
world's first Bose-Einstein condensate, a new form of matter that occurs at
just a few hundred billionths of a degree above absolute zero.
The three scientists will share the $943,000 prize "for the achievement
Bose-Einstein condensation in dilute gases of alkali atoms, and for early
fundamental studies of the properties of the condensate," according to the
Wieman and Cornell become the second and third Nobel Prize winners at
CU-Boulder, and Cornell is the second for NIST. Thomas Cech, a CU-Boulder
professor of chemistry and biochemistry, was a co-winner of the 1989 Nobel
Prize in chemistry with Sydney Altman of Yale University for research on RNA.
William Phillips, a NIST fellow, shared the 1997 Nobel Prize in physics.
I lum AMVs ^_____^ and I lum my T1 line*'ank u university* so I don't have to wait extremely long to DL 'ems AMVs~
I need Painter...
