AGU Seeks Nominations for Sullivan and Perlman Journalism Awards 2010

11.11.2009
Science journalists are invited to submit nominations for the American Geophysical Union's 2010 journalism awards, honoring outstanding reporting on Earth and space sciences.

Starting with these 2010 awards, the deadline for submissions has been moved to early January to attract greater numbers of entries, including stories from the AGU 2009 Fall Meeting, Dec. 14-18, in San Francisco (http://www.agu.org/meetings/fm09/). The 2010 awards deadline is 8 January 2010.

Nominations are welcome for:

* The Walter Sullivan Award for Excellence in Science Journalism-Features, which recognizes excellence in reporting, generally produced with deadlines of longer than one week, that explains the background of scientific discoveries or principles. It is named for Walter Sullivan of The New York Times, first recipient of the award.

* The David Perlman Award for Excellence in Science Journalism-News, which recognizes excellence in reporting news of scientific advances, generally produced under deadline pressure of one week or less. It is named for David Perlman, Science Editor of the San Francisco Chronicle and 1997 winner of the AGU Award for Sustained Achievement in Science Journalism.

The awards consist of a plaque and a $2,000 stipend, to be presented at an AGU meeting in 2010. Nominations may be submitted for work first published between 1 November 2008 and 31 December 2009 and may be from any country, in any language (English translation required), and in any news medium, except books.

The deadline is Friday, 8 January 2010. This deadline has been changed from previous years.
Entries must be received (not postmarked) by 8 January 2010 to be considered for the awards.

The only authoritative statement of the rules governing these awards (and a link to the nomination form) are posted at http://www.agu.org/sci_soc/sci_awards.html#Eligibility_and_submission_requirements (Do not rely on the brief summary in this announcement.)

AGU is a worldwide scientific community that advances, through unselfish cooperation in research, the understanding of the Earth and space for the benefit of humanity.

Im Focus: Entangled atoms shine in unison

A team led by Austrian experimental physicist Rainer Blatt has succeeded in characterizing the quantum entanglement of two spatially separated atoms by observing their light emission. This fundamental demonstration could lead to the development of highly sensitive optical gradiometers for the precise measurement of the gravitational field or the earth's magnetic field.

The age of quantum technology has long been heralded. Decades of research into the quantum world have led to the development of methods that make it possible...

Im Focus: Computer-Designed Customized Regenerative Heart Valves

Cardiovascular tissue engineering aims to treat heart disease with prostheses that grow and regenerate. Now, researchers from the University of Zurich, the Technical University Eindhoven and the Charité Berlin have successfully implanted regenerative heart valves, designed with the aid of computer simulations, into sheep for the first time.

Producing living tissue or organs based on human cells is one of the main research fields in regenerative medicine. Tissue engineering, which involves growing...

Im Focus: Light-induced superconductivity under high pressure

A team of scientists of the Max Planck Institute for the Structure and Dynamics of Matter (MPSD) at the Center for Free-Electron Laser Science in Hamburg investigated optically-induced superconductivity in the alkali-doped fulleride K3C60under high external pressures. This study allowed, on one hand, to uniquely assess the nature of the transient state as a superconducting phase. In addition, it unveiled the possibility to induce superconductivity in K3C60 at temperatures far above the -170 degrees Celsius hypothesized previously, and rather all the way to room temperature. The paper by Cantaluppi et al has been published in Nature Physics.

Unlike ordinary metals, superconductors have the unique capability of transporting electrical currents without any loss. Nowadays, their technological...
