Peebles demurred, replying instead: "It's a life's work".

The Big Bang model describes the universe from its very first moments, nearly 14 billion years ago, when it was extremely hot and dense.

An exoplanet is a planet outside the solar system. "Although we've made great advances, there are still many open questions".

By carefully measuring these, we've gotten critical information regarding how much of the Universe is occupied by regular matter, how much is dark matter, and so on. "I'd say this is essentially a textbook discovery".

"I've always loved Bob Dylan", he said, referring to the singer-songwriter who won the literature prize in 2016 but refused to participate in the Nobel ceremony. "That's what I did".

Professor Queloz, who has worked at the University of Cambridge since 2013, said he was certain that alien life will have been detected from Earth within 100 years.

This handout photo obtained October 8, 2019 shows Professor James Peebles speaking during the 43rd annual Donald R. Hamilton Lecture at Princeton University in Princeton, New Jersey. The duo has succeeded in discovering he first exoplanet 50 light years away in the constellation of Pegasus. It was called 51 Pegasi. Since their initial discovery, more than 4,000 exoplanets have been found in our home galaxy, according to the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences.

Semenza's scientific paper describing the protein that responds to low oxygen has now been cited thousands of times, but he recalled that it was rejected from numerous top journals - a reminder that science builds on itself over time, and blockbuster discoveries that transform understanding are not instantly apparent, even to other scientists.

"In the past, astronomy has been included primarily when the discovery involves some new physics", Rees said. Ratcliffe was born in Lancashire in the United Kingdom, and he is now at the University of Oxford and the Francis Crick Institute in London, where he also did his prize-winning work.

In 2018, the honour went to Arthur Ashkin of the US, Gerard Mourou of France and Donna Strickland of the US for laser inventions used for advanced precision instruments in corrective eye surgery and in industry.

The three physicians "found the molecular switch that regulates how our cells adapt when oxygen levels drop", said Randall Johnson, a member of the Nobel Committee.

Danielsson then moved on to explain the other half of this year's prize.

Goran Hansson, secretary general of the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences, said the TV show was a "fantastic achievement" that brought the "world of science to laptops and living rooms around the world". The sixth one, the peace prize, is handed out in Oslo, Norway on the same day.

"This discovery is the most exciting of our entire career, and to be awarded a Nobel Prize is simply extraordinary", Mayor and Queloz said in a statement on Tuesday.
