  • Description

    Donald Glaser, 34-year-old professor at the University of California, was Nov 3 awarded the Nobel Prize in physics for his invention of the bubble chamber. Accompanied by his wife, Professor Glaser - who was married only a few days earlier - arrived in Copenhagen Dec 3.

    Seven days later, the professor's honeymoon journey will end when he is presented with the Nobel Prize by the Royal Swedish Academy of Science in Stockholm.

    The bubble chamber is an apparatus in which elementary particles can be traced in liquids. It is one of the most important devices in nuclear physics.

    Professor Willard Libby, 51-year-old member of the United States Atomic Energy Commission, was awarded the Nobel Prize for chemistry for inventing the carbon-14 method of determining age in archaeology, geology, and other branches of science.

    Prizes to be presented this year by the Royal Swedish Academy of Science are said to be worth about GBP15,600.
