Final yr, scientists Syukuro Manabe, Klaus Hasselmann and Giorgio Parisi shared the physics prize for his or her work on advanced bodily methods equivalent to Earth’s altering local weather, key in understanding world warming.
Introduced over consecutive weekdays in early October, the physics prize announcement will probably be adopted by awards for chemistry, literature, peace and economics, the latter added in 1969 to the unique line-up.
