What they're saying about us, July 27, 2010. . . . The Daily Planet blog tells the story of "the most well traveled Nobel in the universe"


John Mather at the Nobel ceremony

I just caught this great post on the Air & Space Smithsonian’s Daily Planet blog. It’s about an item of special significance to us Goddard geeks that was carried into space aboard the space shuttle in May. As blogger Rebecca Maksel explains:

But a number of smaller articles made the 11-day journey as well, one of which was the National Air and Space Museum’s replica of John Mather’s 2006 Nobel Prize for Physics. (Dr. Mather, of the NASA Goddard Space Flight Center, was awarded the prize jointly with George F. Smoot of the University of California at Berkeley “for their discovery of the blackbody form and anisotropy of the cosmic microwave background radiation.”)

Read the rest on Daily Planet. . . . .

OH AND DID I MENTION? All opinions and opinionlike objects in this blog are mine alone and NOT those of NASA or Goddard Space Flight Center. And while we’re at it, links to websites posted on this blog do not imply endorsement of those websites by NASA.
