ANU is celebrating another astronomical win:

Professor Ken Freeman from The Australian National University has been awarded the American Astronomical Society’s top prize.

The prestigious Henry Norris Russell Lectureship was awarded to Professor Freeman in recognition of a lifetime of seminal contributions to astronomy, including his work on the structure and dynamics of our Galaxy and other galaxies.

“I feel very honoured to receive this prize for lifetime achievement from the American Astronomical Society,” Professor Freeman, who has worked in the Research School of Astronomy and Astrophysics at ANU for the past 40 years, said.

“Many of my old friends, mentors and colleagues are on the list of past recipients of this prize, and it is a great pleasure to be listed with them.”
