2019 Nobel Prize in Physics Awarded

The 2019 Nobel Prize in Physics was awarded to three distinguished contributors to the SPIE Community. SPIE congratulates James Peebles, Michel Mayor, and Didier Queloz for their accomplishments in astronomy and planetary exploration. To celebrate, SPIE is providing their SPIE publications free to the community through the end of 2019.
