Some of the best scientists in the world can be found right here in California. So as part of the California Science Center's mission to increase awareness in new scientific research and achievement, each year we recognize the accomplishments of an outstanding California scientist through the California Scientist of the Year Award. The recipient of the 2004 California Scientist of the Year Award is Kip Thorne, Ph.D.

Since the California Scientist of the Year program began, over 40 scientists from fields as diverse as chemistry, physics, medicine, biology and astronomy have received the award, and eleven of the past winners have gone on to win Nobel prizes. As we move into the next millennium, even greater things are on the horizon for California science.
