Popular Science announces Third Annual 'Brilliant 10'

New York, NY, September 14, 2004--Popular Science magazine names its third annual "Brilliant 10" today, a list of ten young scientists to watch. All are extraordinary thinkers who are gaining recognition in their fields, yet remain virtually unknown to the general public. The article appears in the October issue of Popular Science, on newsstands today.

"Brilliant 10 is our way of bringing some of the brightest, most promising minds in science to a mainstream audience," said Mark Jannot, Editor in Chief of Popular Science. "This is a group of ten people largely unfamiliar to most, but their work will change our lives."

The Third Annual Popular Science "Brilliant 10," in alphabetical order, are:

  • Robin Canup, 35, Southwest Research Institute (Boulder, CO) for her work in the field of planetary science. Ever since the Apollo missions, astronomers suspected that the moon originated from bits of the Earth that were knocked off in a collision, but they didn't know how the collision occurred. Canup created computer simulations showing that the hypothesis makes sense over a wide range of scenarios and explains some of what we know about the moon and Earth today. Someday, her simulations may predict which planets outside our solar system contain moons like ours.

  • Maria Chudnovsky, 27, Princeton University, (Princeton, NJ) for her work in the field of mathematics. Maria Chudnovsky wants to understand the world completely. Why do storm clouds appear before it rains? Why do we catch cold? What's really wrong with her car? Most of the time she's frustrated, but she takes comfort in the abstract realm of mathematics, where all facts stem from provable universal laws. Her single-mindedness helped prove the perfect-graph conjecture, a hypothesis that stumped generations of her predecessors.

  • Kurt Cuffey, 34, University of California, Berkeley, for his work in the field of glaciology. Cuffey is helping to
