Supernovae research wins Nobel Physics Prize
Posted on: Tuesday, October 04, 2011

Researchers Saul Perlmutter and Adam Riess of the USA and US-Australian Brian Schmidt were awarded the 2011 Nobel Physics Prize Tuesday for their study on exploding stars which revealed that the universe is expanding at an accelerated rate.

AFP - Researchers Saul Perlmutter and Adam Riess of the United States and US-Australian Brian Schmidt won the 2011 Nobel Physics Prize Tuesday for their research on supernovae, the Nobel jury said.

"They have studied several dozen exploding stars, called supernovae, and discovered that the universe is expanding at an ever-accelerating rate," it said, adding that their discovery had changed mankind's understanding of the universe.

The breakthrough came in 1998, when one research team headed by Perlmutter and another led by Schmidt and accompanied by Riess reached the same astounding conclusion that the expansion of the universe was rapidly accelerating.

"If the expansion continues to speed up, the universe will end in ice," the jury said.
