Post by: Psalm 51:17 on December 11, 2012, 08:29:52 am


GENEVA (AP) A Russian billionaire's foundation is awarding two special prizes of $3 million each to British cosmologist Stephen Hawking for his work on black holes and to seven scientists at the world's biggest atom-smasher for their roles in the discovery of a new subatomic particle believed to be the long-sought Higgs boson.
Yuri Milner's Fundamental Physics Prize Foundation announced the awards in a statement Tuesday.
Hawking is honored for his discovery of Hawking radiation from black holes "and his deep contributions to quantum gravity and quantum aspects of the early universe."
The prize money for the European Organization for Nuclear Research, or CERN, is being split among a scientist who oversaw the building of the $10 billion atom smasher and six physicists who oversaw two teams of 3,000 scientists each.

Eddie Redmayne wins best actor Oscar for 'Theory of Everything'

LOS ANGELES, Feb 22 (Reuters) - Eddie Redmayne won the best actor Oscar on Sunday for his portrayal as physicist Stephen Hawking in the biographical movie "The Theory of Everything."

It was the first Oscar for the British actor, 33, whose performance as Hawking over the course of 30 years and the disabling complications of motor neuron disease, has also brought him a Golden Globe, SAG (Taiwan OTC: 6417.TWO - news) and British BAFTA trophies for the break-out role.
