Riess learned of the award in a predawn phone call. “I was home, and I was trying to sleep, and my 10-month-old was kind of yipping and yapping,” he said. “The phone rang, it was 5:30, and it was Swedish-sounding people, and I knew they weren’t from Ikea.”
Words from Adam Riess, a now Nobel-winning astronomer.
My 6-month old was, however, yipping and yapping. So there is that.
