One of the least unexpected Nobel prizes - Biomedical Physics

One of the least unexpected Nobel prizes

Immediately after the first publication of the LIGO Laser Interferometer Gravitational Wave Observatory on the gravitational reception and reception results in February 2016, not only Physics but also all anyone who cares is absolutely unanimous that this invention is too worthy to receive a Nobel Prize in Physics. Unfortunately, LIGO's announcement is a little late - with the Nobel registration deadline in 2016. Well, let's move on to the following year. Thanh-try, from more than a year ago, is 100% confident that the 2017 Nobel Prize will be awarded to the rightful representatives of LIGO. So, the Nobel Prize for Physics publication on October 3 of the Nobel Committee is the least unbelievable father, including the three "representative of LIGO" because they are so familiar - belongs to the scientific community as well as the media.

Barish, born in 1936 in Omaha (USA), worked at the California Institute of Technology (CalTech, USA); and Kip S. Thorne, born in 1940 in Logan (USA), also working at CalTech (USA). Rainer Weiss and Kip Thorne are the creators of the LIGO project. Also, Barry Barish was the one who brought this project to success.

And, the amount of 9 million Swedish Krone (equivalent to more than 1.1 million USD) is divided as follows: Rainer Weiss received half, the other half divided equally for Barry Barish and Kip Thorne. As we wrote in the previous newsletters, after the February 2016 article, LIGO announced more results to capture the gravitational waves of different Black Holes. The success of LIGO is the success of a nearly 40-year-old project with the participation of more than a thousand scientists in more than twenty countries. LIGO is still self-fulfilling and the more important inventions seem to be at hand.
