Bruno Rossi Prize 2024 to IXPE team

IXPE vince il Premio Bruno Rossi per il 2024.

The Bruno Rossi Prize for 2024 belongs to IXPE.

Martin Weisskopf, Paolo Soffitta and the entire IXPE team deserve great credit for having opened a new window in the sky and more broadly in our knowledge: that of X-ray polarimetry.

This is the full motivation from the High Energy Astrophysics Division (HEAD) of the American Astronomical Society (AAS) accompanying the award:

"The 2024 HEAD Bruno Rossi Prize is awarded to Martin Weisskopf, Paolo Soffitta and IXPE team for their development of the Imaging X-ray Polarimetry Explorer whose novel measurements advance our understanding of particle acceleration and emission from astrophysical shocks, black holes and neutron stars."

Congratulations to Paolo and the entire IXPE team for this recognition!
