UH Astronomer to receive prestigious award

By 67AM KPUA News

University of Hawaii astronomer Brent Tully has been awarded a major prize for his work to better understand the structure and evolution of the nearby universe.

The Institute for Astronomy said Tuesday that Tully is one of four people who will receive the 2014 Gruber Foundation Cosmology Prize and will share a $500,000 award. Tully is known for helping develop a way for astronomers to determine distances to galaxies. He has also published a catalog of nearby galaxies, which was the first major attempt to illustrate the three-dimensional distribution of galaxies.

The prize will be presented at Yale University in October.
