Brian Schmidt’s nobel goes on display at Questacon

Ruqi 31 July 2012 2

The ABC has word that Canberra’s Nobel Laureate has put his nobel prize on display at Questacon:

Professor Schmidt and his team won the 2011 Nobel Physics Prize for their groundbreaking discovery that the expansion of the universe is speeding up over time, not slowing down as widely assumed.

They also found that the universe is being pushed apart by a mysterious unexplained force called “dark energy.”

The Australian National University Professor says the medal will be on display at Questacon in Canberra for the foreseeable future.

“You know a Nobel Prize is really something symbolic of what an entire nation is working on in science,” he said.

I saw that on the ABC news and immediately decided that my kids must see this thing.

That, and for different reasons, the Long Tan cross at the AWM.
