Physicists awarded top Aussie science gong – Riverine Herald
When a young David Blair arrived in the United States in the 1970s to help build a gravitational wave detector, he figured it would be a short-term project.”I thought I’d go there, spend a year or two, detect these waves then go on and do something else,” the University of Western Australia physicist says wryly.
“Never did I guess that I’d be hooked into this for the next four decades and we’d go struggling and struggling and struggling until finally we managed to detect these waves.”
Gravity waves, epigenetics win top Australian science prize – Sydney Morning Herald
When Professor Susan Scott was a physics student, the general thinking among scientists was discovering gravitational waves was next to impossible.
Einstein himself really thought there wasnt a hope in hell of anyone detecting gravitational waves, given how small their amplitude was, Professor Scott said.
On Wednesday night, Professor Scott and three other Australian physicists won the $250,000 Prime Ministers Prize for Science for helping to prove they exist.
She becomes the first female physicist to ever win Australia’s top prize for science.
Its a very important milestone, she said. Its incredibly important that young women can see we can…

(CNN)In the 1980s, paleontologists at the University of California Riverside visited Seymour Island, part of an island chain in the Antarctic Peninsula. They brought home a number of fossils — including the foot bone and partial jaw bone of two prehistoric birds.
For decades, the fossils sat in a museum at the University of California Berkeley — until a graduate student named Peter Kloess started poking around in 2015.
In a study published Monday in the journal “Scientific Reports,” Kloess identified…
