BERKELEY, CA óGeorge Smoot of Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory has been awarded the Daniel Chalonge Medal by the International School of Astrophysics "Daniel Chalonge," known as the Chalonge School. The handsome bronze medal was awarded "for George Smoot's 15-year support and outstanding contributions to the Chalonge School." The school offers summer and fall programs in cutting-edge topics in cosmology and astrophysics to graduate and postdoctoral students; it was established in 1991 to honor the pioneering French astrophysicist.
