The three 2006 science Nobel Prizes—for physics, chemistry, and medicine—have all been awarded to Americans.
- Chemistry — awarded to Roger Kornberg of Stanford University, for his work on the transcription of DNA to messenger RNA.
- Physics — awarded to George Smoot of UC-Berkeley and John Mather of NASA for their discovery of small variations of the microwave microwave background radiation.
- Medicine — awarded to Craig Mello of the U Mass Medical Center and Andrew Fire of Stanford University for their work on RNA interference in cells, which helps to understand the function of individual genes.
American science is far from being dead.
Grace and Peace
