Kroto elected to National Academy of Sciences
For Harold Kroto, very few, if any, professional accomplishments can top being chosen to receive a Nobel Prize for Chemistry, as he was in 1996. However, his latest honor, announced Tuesday, might come close.
Kroto, the Eppes Professor of Chemistry at Florida State University, has been elected as a foreign associate to the National Academy of Sciences—one of the highest honors that can be accorded a scientist or engineer.
