2010 Gruber Cosmology Prize

Beginning with a series of breakthrough discoveries in 1995, Charles Steidel has led the exploration of distant galaxies, dating to an era when the universe was only one-tenth its current age, or about 12 billion years ago. That research not only extended astronomy’s reach into the past but expanded cosmology’s understanding of how galaxies have formed and evolved throughout the history of the universe.
