Winner Of 2012 AIP Science Communication Awards For Science Writing


The American Institute of Physics (AIP) has selected author Richard Panek as winner of this year’s AIP Science Communication Award in the Science Writing category for his book The 4% Universe: Dark Matter, Dark Energy, and the Race to Discover the Rest of Reality.

The selection committee praised the book for its excellent writing and accurate depictions of the process of scientific investigation.

“The mysteries of cosmology easily capture the imagination,” said Catherine O’Riordan, AIP vice president for Physics Resources. “This particular book presents the underlying physics of dark matter and dark energy in a way that draws the reader in and tells an engaging story of researchers at the frontiers of discovery.”
