Dobitniki letošnje nagrade za kozmologijo, ki jo podeljuje Gruberjeva fundacija, so kozmologi Marc Kamionkowski (Johns Hopkins University), Uroš Seljak (University of California, Berkeley in Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory) in Matias Zaldarriaga (Institute for Advanced Study).

Dobitniki letošnje nagrade za kozmologijo, ki jo podeljuje Gruberjeva fundacija, so kozmologi Marc Kamionkowski (Johns Hopkins University), Uroš Seljak (University of California, Berkeley in Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory) in Matias Zaldarriaga (Institute for Advanced Study). Razvili so tehnike za raziskovanje vesoljskih struktur na velikih skalah in lastnosti zgodnjega vesolja, s posebnim poudarkom na razumevanju nastanka kozmičnega prasevanja in njegove polarizacije.

The Gruber Foundation is pleased to present the 2021 Cosmology Prize to Marc Kamionkowski, Uroš Seljak, and Matias Zaldarriaga for their work on the Cosmic Microwave Background, the most direct tracer of the primordial universe and of its physics. Their theoretical predictions and analysis tools for the cosmic background, its intensity, and even more its polarization, have been essential to the development of this field of research over the last twenty-five years, already testing predictions of the inflation model for the early expansion of our universe. Furthermore, their work has been key to initiating new observation projects extending over the next fifteen years, in the quest for detecting the imprint of primordial gravitational waves on the microwave background.

Čestitamo nagrajencem, še posebej prof. Seljaku, ki je svoj študijsko pot začel na naši univerzi. Pred dvema letoma je gostoval v Sloveniji, kjer je imel plenarno predavanje na Svetovnem kongresu slovenskih fizikov (http://sksf.fmf.uni-lj.si/), na katerem so svoje vrhunske dosežke predstavljali slovenski fiziki uveljavljeni na tujih univerzah in institutih.
