This week President Obama unveiled his personal list of people that he wanted to recognize for their contributions to science, technology, and innovation. The awards given out yesterday are prestigious and rare to say the least so those that received them are surely glad to have received such incredible recognition.
The awards were specifically given to seven researchers for their various discoveries including new DNA properties, new health and medicine discoveries, optimized research methods, and much more. Five people were also recognized for their amazing inventions which included things such as space craft and aircraft guidance systems, and other advanced inventions. All of the recipients were personally given their awards by President Obama at the official ceremony and dinner, during which he spoke about the many accomplishments and achievements the group had made.
Overall analysts agree with President Obama’s sentiments that the group of scientists truly had made some of the greatest advancements in their respective fields. It is not often that a group of scientists is recognized on a global platform such as this one so it is truly fitting that they were all personally presented their awards by the president himself. Until next year these 12 men and women will be considered America’s top scientists and innovators, many of them are surely hoping to stay in that group in the coming years as well which will hopefully help develop even more advancement in the scientific world.
