Summary

Half of this year's Nobel Prize in physics went to Ray Davis of the University of Pennsylvania and Masatoshi Koshiba of the University of Tokyo for using neutrinos to gain insight into the cosmos. The other half went to Riccardo Giacconi of Associated Universities Inc. for a 4-decade-long effort to view the universe with x-ray spectacles.
