It was announced last week that a Special Breakthrough Prize in Fundamental Physics had been awarded to Dame Jocelyn Bell Burnell in recognition of her discovery of pulsars and her inspiring scientific leadership over the last five decades. Previous Recipients of the US $3M Special Prize include Stephen Hawking, CERN Scientists whose leadership led to the discovery of the Higgs Boson, and to the LIGO Collaboration that detected gravitational waves.
