Hooray!

Speaking of cosmology, congrats to these guys:

Americans Win Nobel Prize in Physics

They're the dudes who develeped the COBE satellite that detected the background radiation that gave much-needed weight to the Big Bang theory. I like this part of the article:
The COBE results were first presented at an Americans [sic] Astronomical Society meeting in 1993, triggering an audible gasp and a later ovation from the assembled scientists.
Hehe. You know there was some reporter in the room who was like, "Wait, what? What just happened??"
