2015 Gruber Cosmology Prize

Ostriker and the leadership in the design and execution of observations of the universe’s relic radiation by John E. Carlstrom and Lyman A. Page, Jr., have contributed to, clarified, and advanced a new model of the universe—one that is part dark matter, part regular matter, and part dark energy, and was wholly powered by a primordial hyper-expansion of space called inflation.
