Canadian-born scientist James Peebles wins 2019 Nobel Prize in physics

Canadian born scientist James Peebles is one of three people who have won the Nobel Prize in Physics this year.

Peebles, the Albert Einstein Professor of Science and professor of physics at Princeton University in New Jersey, won the award "for theoretical discoveries in physical cosmology."

“This year’s prize goes to contributions to our understanding of the evolution of our universe and Earth’s place in the cosmos,”

Peebles shares the 9 million kronor (CA$1.2 million) cash prize with Michel Mayor of the University of Geneva, Switzerland, and Didier Queloz of the Universities of Geneva and Cambridge "for the discovery of an exoplanet orbiting a solar-type star." An exoplanet is a planet outside our solar system, several of which have been observed orbiting stars similar to the sun.

“The discoveries have forever changed our conceptions of the world.”

“Which particular step did I take? I would be very hard-pressed to say. It’s a life’s work.”

"What might we learn from lines of research that are off the beaten track? They check accepted ideas, always a good thing, and there is the chance nature has prepared yet another surprise for us."

The professor from Guelph, Ont., who works at the University of Waterloo, was the first Canadian and third woman in history to receive the prize.
