    Etc.: Popular Mechanics: Meet the scientists who just shared $25 million in prize money for their discoveries
    Submitted by J.W. Bizzaro; posted on Tuesday, December 06, 2016



    The Breakthrough Prize gave away $25 million dollars to more than a thousand scientists on Sunday.

    The Prize is the brainchild of Russian tech billionaire Yuri Milner. Milner, who also funds research investigating Tabby's Star (of "alien megastructure" fame), brought tech all-stars including Sergey Brin, Mark Zuckerberg, and Anne Wojcicki on board for the prize, which seeks to add a bit of glamour and excitement to the world of scientific prizes. Morgan Freeman hosted this year's awards, televised live on National Geographic and soon to be rebroadcast on Fox.
