In place of the usual editorial, we would like to start this 34th issue of h with the following words from Rainer Weiss about the Nobel Prize award.
“The Nobel prize is intimidating. To think that you belong in the same category as Fermi, Bohr or Einstein is clearly nonsense. To think that you represent a large number of people who have worked on the detection of gravitational waves who together have opened a new field of science is a more convivial idea. I can almost live with that.”
