Congratulations to the 2004 Nobel Prize winners in Physics

The Chair of the Global Energy International Award Committee, Nobel Prize Laureate of the year 2000 in physics Academician Zhores Alferov sent the letters of congratulation to David J. Gross – Professor in Kohn Hall University of California at Santa Barbara, David Politzer – Professor in California Institute of Technology, Pasadena and Frank Wilczek - Professor of Physics in Massachusetts Institute of Technology on occasion of their receiving the Nobel Prize of the year 2004 in physics.

It is said: “Your contributions to physics are numerous and important and I am firmly convinced that scientists all over the world highly estimate it. Let me cite Louis Pasteur, who said: “Science knows no country, because knowledge belongs to humanity, and is the torch which illuminates the world.”

Therefore the Global Energy International Prize Foundation wants to add its sincere congratulations for the prestigious recognition and wishes you all the best satisfactions for many years to come. The Global Energy International Prize was put forward by a group of Russian scientists at the end of 2002. This Prize is awarded annually starting from 2003. It is a new scientific award for outstanding theoretical, experimental and applied research in the field of energy development and power generation. It is such directions of the research and development work that the Global Energy International Prize is intended to support, quite in line with the humanistic traditions of the Nobel Prize institution, whose main criteria for awarding the prize is the benefit to the mankind. Thus the international character of the Global Energy International Prize is in no way accidental. The Russian Federation pays a great attention to this scientific award. The Prize was supported by the President of Russia Vladimir Putin.

I avail myself of this opportunity to extend you my personal heartiest congratulations and to wish you good health, personal happiness and long years of further activity as a scientist.”
