Nobel Prize for Physics 2008

Thanks to my loyal blog reader for this link too.

This is on Nobel Prize for Physics and it is from NST too.


Japan’s Makoto Kobayashi and Toshihide Maskawa, along with Yoichiro Nambu of the United States, won the Nobel Physics Prize today for their pioneering work on fundamental particles of matter called quarks.

Nambu won half the prize for developing a “standard model of elementary particle physics (which) unifies the smallest building blocks of all matter and three of nature’s four forces in one single theory,” the Nobel jury said.

The Japanese duo were honoured for their discovery “of the origin of the broken symmetry which predicts the existence of at least three families of quarks in nature.” - AFP

Would encourage any of my blog readers to share with me any event that you come across. As long as the event/activity/initiative is education/charity/youth oriented and is not-for-profit, I would be more than happy to post it to share!
