Peebles thanked the Nobel committee for the award but said his advice to young people wanting to go into science would be not to be lured by the prospect of such prizes. The physics prize is handed out Tuesday and the following day is the chemistry prize.

"These fundamental findings have greatly increased our understanding of how the body adapts to change", said Randall Johnson, a professor at the Karolinska Institute, and a member of the Nobel Assembly, which selects Nobel laureates. He broke the news to his wife, who was just as surprised as he was.

"Cells and tissues are constantly experiencing changes in oxygen availability", Johnson said.

In many ways, this year's physics prize rewards cumulative research and discovery that has been long in the making for all three recipients.

"You understand, I'm used to a quiet life".

Johnson added, "Scientists often toss around this phrase 'textbook discovery.' But I'd say this is really a textbook discovery". "And now I'm here, standing on the shoulders of giants, and I hope to try and help advance science just like they did". "To make that kind of spark".

Neil Turok, who worked with Peebles at Princeton and now serves as director of the Centre for the Universe at the Perimeter Institute in Waterloo, Ont., described his former colleague as an unsung hero, famous in the world of cosmology, but seldom recognized outside of it.

The prize of 9 million Swedish crowns ($913,000) will be shared equally by the three winners.

As a child growing up in St. Boniface, Norwood and St.

Through the laureates' work, "We have gained access to a technological revolution: truly portable electronics", said Sara Snogerup Linse of Lund University in Sweden.

"One of my early memories is throwing a tantrum because I wasn't allowed to put together the coffee percolator... We're all built in different ways, and that's my build".

Semenza, who works at Johns Hopkins University, showed that the increase in EPO is regulated by a specific gene called the hypoxia response element, or HRE.

"Jim is a super pleasant, approachable guy".

"Judge yourself by how well you've done", Peebles said.

The Big Bang Theory fans have reason to rejoice at the hug shoutout considering the finale featured a Nobel Prize acceptance. "It's generated all sorts of significant branches of research, all of which have been validated over time", he said.

Developed over two decades since the mid-1960s, Mr Peebles' theoretical framework is "the basis of our contemporary ideas about the Universe". "I simply liked looking at the world around us".

Whittingham, 77, is a professor at the Binghamton University, State University of NY.

Mr Peebles won one-half of the prize "for theoretical discoveries that have contributed to our understanding of how the Universe evolved after the Big Bang", professor Goran Hansson, secretary general of the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences, told a press conference.
