October 2006
On October 3 the Nobel Prize Committee announced the award of the 2006 Nobel Prize for Physics to John Mather and George Smoot for their leadership of two ground-breaking experiments aboard NASA's Cosmic Background Explorer satellite. Their work established that matter and radiation were in almost perfect thermodynamic equilibrium in the early Universe with only very weak non-uniformities which have since developed into the stars, galaxies and larger structures which populate the present Universe.
