Kavli Prizes to honor top scientists

Abstract:
Someday, the surname of Fred Kavli, a Norwegian-born physicist and entrepreneur now living in Santa Barbara, might be as famous as that of Alfred Nobel - at least among scientists.

The first winners of the three new Kavli Prizes for outstanding research in nanoscience, neuroscience and astrophysics will be announced May 28. In September, the winners each will receive $1 million, from the hand of Norwegian Crown Prince Haakon, at a ceremony in Oslo. The award is in the range of the Nobel Prize, which last year was approximately $1.6 million.

"The three fields, astrophysics, nanoscience and neuroscience, were selected by Mr. Kavli himself. He thinks these are three of the most exciting fields of science this century, leading to the most important advances," said David Auston, president of the Kavli Foundation.
