'Our ascertain of our web page within the universe will in no blueprint be the the same again'.

"We still must admit that the dark matter and dark energy are mysterious", Peebles told the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences.

Peebles, hailed as one of the most influential cosmologists of his time, will collect one half of the 9-million kronor ($918,000) cash award, and the Swiss men will share the other half.

As for the whirlpool question from Peebles' lecture in 1971: since Princeton is in the northern hemisphere, if the professor had a large enough Value-Added Tax, the water would drain clockwise. "Some of it will go to our children".

Mayor and Queloz work at University of Geneva, while Peebles is at Princeton University.

"I can't believe that we're the only living entities in the universe", he said when asked if he believes "aliens" exist.

"One of my earliest memories is throwing a tantrum because I wasn't allowed to put together the coffee percolator", he said.

Swiss scientist Michel Mayor was jointly awarded the 2019 Nobel Prize in Physics for his discovery of an exoplanet orbiting a solar-type star. In the decades since, scientists have found thousands more of these exoplanets, and astronomers now think our universe contains more planets than stars.

"I could barely breathe", Queloz told The Associated Press. "It's enormous. It's beyond usual emotions". "It's just so exciting to me that someone who was in my place a long time ago was able to get to this point". "I'm trying to digest it". "He exemplifies both Princeton's dazzling tradition of fundamental research in cosmology and gravitation, and also this University's commitment to put its best scholars in the classroom".

"No", he said, "that's never come to my mind". In 1995, Michel Mayor and Didier Queloz were the first to discover a planet orbiting a solar-type star, much like our Sun. "This is the dark matter", he said.

During the conference, Peebles spoke about his work and about his surprise of being awarded the Nobel.

Speaking at the Science Media Centre in London, Queloz said the discovery of exoplanets could lead to an answer to whether there is other life in the universe.

As for the award Peebles received for his work in physical cosmology, Dube said he isn't surprised.

He said he answered a 5:30 a.m. phone call on Tuesday thinking "it's either something very wonderful or it's something terrible".

Medicine is the first of the Nobel Prizes given each year.

Hansson ended by saying that hopefully followers of the present preferred how they dealt with this 12 months's Nobel prize announcement.

"This year's Laureates have transformed our ideas about the cosmos", the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences said. A reference to the show's theme song.

The trio will receive the prize from King Carl XVI Gustaf at a formal ceremony in Stockholm on December 10, the anniversary of the 1896 death of scientist Alfred Nobel who created the prizes in his last will and testament.

On Friday the action moves to Norway where the Peace Prize is awarded, with bookies predicting a win for Swedish teen climate activist Greta Thunberg on betting sites such as Ladbrokes.
