On November 20 friends and colleagues of Gerald J. Wasserburg gathered at Caltech's Athenaeum to honor him as recipient of the 1986 Crafoord Prize. Awarded annually by the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences, the prize for work in mathematics, astronomy, geosciences, or biosciences is one of the scientific community's most prestigious honors. The award cited Wasserburg, the John D. MacArthur Professor of Geology and Geophysics, for his "major impact on our knowledge of the universe, focusing on the origins and history of the solar system and its component bodies. His work has established a time scale for the development of the early solar system and the formation of the planets, the moons, and the meteorites."
