MIT Physicist Wins $3M Prize

Alan Guth, a 65-year-old MIT professor, is $3 million richer today, thanks to a new prize he won that rewards cutting-edge physics research.

He and eight other physicists from around the world are the first recipients of the annual Fundamental Physics Prize, given out by the Milner Foundation, which was established by a former Russian physics student who became a billionaire investing in companies including Facebook and Groupon.

WBUR’s All Things Considered host Sacha Pfeiffer spoke with Guth about his award.

    In a press release on May 27, 2012 I said : “An operative of CIA-RAW, which works for American rule over India and is responsible for all insurgencies and separatism in India — see ‘What You Should Know About RAW’ ( WhatYouShouldKnowAboutRAWDOTblogspotDOTcom ) — is posting repeated comments on Times of India on how an Indian boy from Bengal who cracked centuries-old Math problems is Tamil because the scientific community in India is predominantly Tamil. Nobel Prizes, even in science, are awarded by Westerners to serve their imperialist interests. It is well known that Tagore got the Nobel Prize because he wrote ‘Jana Gana Mana’ as a hymn to the visiting British emperor. An Indian from Uttar Pradesh would easily merit half a dozen Nobel Prizes but an Economics Nobel was given to a mediocre man, Amartya Sen, as a substitute for the former to keep the Westerners’ crimes against the former covered up; see ‘How India’s Economy Can Grow 30% Per Year Or More’: HowIndiasEconomyCanGrowDOTblogspotDOTcom . Tamils are given Nobel Prizes because they are seen as less resisting of Westerners’ rule/domination of the subcontinent; the British got into the subcontinent primarily through Bengal and Madras. Jews get a lot of Nobel prizes because of their ferocious crimes; see ‘This Is What The Jews Have Been Doing’: ThisIsWhatTheJewsHaveBeenDoingDOTblogspotDOTcom . On knowing this, Rajiv Gandhi when prime minister proposed that  India have its own ‘Nobel’ prizes, but RAW nixed it.”In response to what I said above, the Jews, through a Jewish billionaire in Russia, have awarded a prize of three million dollars each to nine physicists including an Indian, Ashoke Sen, who, like Amartya Sen, is mediocre,  to retain their control of which Indian scientists they will ‘recognize’ — the mediocre ones — and which they will destroy — the best. The Jews’ assault on the world’s greatest scientist in a Harvard University seminar, which I described in a letter to Indira Gandhi as prime minister as “the equivalent of an annihilatory nuclear first strike on India”, exceeds a million times a million of such three million dollar prizes they may award to Indians. The punishment will be commensurate with the crime. Satish Chandra
