In case you haven't heard! Prof Dame Jocelyn Bell Burnell was awarded a Breakthrough Prize!
Originally founded in 2012, the Breakthrough Prizes are intended to be the "Oscars of Science." In addition to the regular awards, the selection committee is also free to award a Special Breakthrough Prize in Fundamental Physics any time it wishes, and the honor need not be for recent discoveries. Bell Burnell is being honored "for fundamental contributions to the discovery of pulsars, and a lifetime of inspiring leadership in the scientific community."
She’s donating the prize money to support women, minority, and refugee students in physics. "I don't want or need the money myself and it seemed to me that this was perhaps the best use I could put to it," she told BBC News.
