Courageously combating war crimes and seeking justice for victims.

Both laureates have made a crucial contribution to focusing attention on, and combating, war crimes. Denis Mukwege is the helper who has devoted his life to defending these victims. Nadia Murad is the witness who tells of the abuses perpetrated against herself and others. Each of them in their own way has helped to give greater visibility to war-time sexual violence, so that the perpetrators can be held accountable for their actions.

Unveiled the mystery of the disappeared matter of the Universe.

Two different astrophysical teams have produced the first concrete evidence of the bridges of hidden cosmic matter that connect galaxies. Hideki Tanimura, researcher at the Institute of Space Astrophysics of Orsay (France) and Anna de Graaff of the University of Edinburgh, have resorted to the effect Sunyaev-Zel'dovich, a phenomenon that occurs when the light released by the Big Bang passes through a hot gas: traveling through the gas, the light scatteres the electrons , leaving a kind of stain on the background cosmic radiation - the Big Bang photography.
