                               For the second time in her career, author Marcia Bartusiak received the AIP Award in the journalist category, this time for her critically acclaimed book Einstein’s Unfinished Symphony: Listening to the Sounds of Space-Time. In the scientist category, co-authors Neil de Grasse Tyson, Charles Tsun-Chu Liu, and Robert Irion received the AIP Award for their book, One Universe: At Home in the Cosmos.“We are very excited about these awards and very proud of our authors,” said Executive Editor Stephen Mautner, who acquired both titles. “Receiving two AIP Awards is a real testament to the strength of our burgeoning list. It shows that we are strong competitors in the trade science marketplace.”

The AIP’s Science Writing award recognizes distinguished writing that improves the general public’s understanding and appreciation of physics, astronomy, and related fields. Prizes are awarded in four categories: Scientists, Journalists, Children’s Books, and Broadcast Media.

Bartusiak has been covering the fields of physics and astronomy for more than two decades. She was the first woman to receive the AIP’s Science Writing award when, in 1982, she was honored for a Discover magazine article on atomic clocks. For many years a contributing editor to Discovermagazine, Bartusiak is now on the editorial advisory board of Astronomymagazine. She is the author of two previous books, Thursday’s Universeand Through a Universe Darkly.

The book for which she won this year’s award, Einstein’s Unfinished Symphony, introduces readers to the science of gravity waves—or vibrations in space-time. It was selected as a New York Times Notable Book for 2001, a Washington Post Book World Rave Review for 2000, a U.S. News & World Report Top Pick of the Week, and a Library Journal Top Science/Technology Book for 2000.
