1970 - US President's National Medal of Science "For bringing the very limits of the universe within the reach of man's awareness and unraveling the evolution fo stars and galaxies--their origins and ages, distances and destinies.", Presented by President Nixon at a White House Ceremony on May 21, 1971.
1963 - Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS)
His primary areas of study are Astrophysics, Astronomy, Galaxy, Elliptical galaxy and Cepheid variable. Absolute magnitude, Hubble's law, Galaxy groups and clusters, Globular cluster and Magnitude are the core of his Astrophysics study. His research in Galaxy cluster, Brightest cluster galaxy, Luminosity function, Redshift and Hubble sequence are components of Astronomy.
His Galaxy research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Stars, Photometry and Atlas. His Elliptical galaxy study which covers Luminous infrared galaxy that intersects with Disc. His Cepheid variable research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Brightness, Supernova, Distance modulus, Cosmic distance ladder and Apparent magnitude.
His primary areas of investigation include Astrophysics, Astronomy, Galaxy, Cepheid variable and Globular cluster. His study in Luminosity, Hubble's law, Stars, Redshift and Absolute magnitude is carried out as part of his Astrophysics studies. His study in Elliptical galaxy, Galaxy cluster, Luminosity function, Virgo Cluster and Luminous infrared galaxy is carried out as part of his studies in Astronomy.
His work on Photometry expands to the thematically related Galaxy. The concepts of his Cepheid variable study are interwoven with issues in Brightness, Supernova, Cosmic distance ladder, Light curve and Apparent magnitude. His Globular cluster research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Star cluster and Open cluster.
His main research concerns Astrophysics, Galaxy, Astronomy, Cepheid variable and Luminosity. His study in Metallicity, RR Lyrae variable, Absolute magnitude, Supernova and Distance modulus are all subfields of Astrophysics. His Galaxy research focuses on subjects like Radius, which are linked to Metric expansion of space.
In general Astronomy study, his work on Stars, Spiral galaxy and Elliptical galaxy often relates to the realm of Mount and Population, thereby connecting several areas of interest. The Cepheid variable study combines topics in areas such as Cosmic distance ladder, Brightness, Photometry and Hubble's law. His research investigates the connection with Luminosity and areas like Large Magellanic Cloud which intersect with concerns in Leo A, Dwarf galaxy and Small Magellanic Cloud.
