Russell Alan Hulse Net Worth

Russell Alan Hulse was bornon November 28, 1950 in New York City, United States, is Physicist. Russell Alan Hulse is an American physicist who was one of the joint winners of the Nobel Prize in Physics 1993 for his discovery of a new type of pulsar; his discovery has opened up new possibilities for the study of gravitation. Russell was born in New York City and was educated at the Bronx High School of Science. He showed a precocious ability to learn a disparate range of scientific subjects and for a while was not sure regarding his choice of study. In order to save on college fees, he enrolled at the Cooper Union and eventually attained his doctorate in physics from the University of Massachusetts. During his time as a post graduate student, he teamed up with his teacher, Joseph H. Taylor Jr., to discover a binary pulsar that would go on to become his life’s greatest work. A few years later, they performed another series of experiments to prove the existence of gravitational waves, as propounded by Albert Einstein in his Theory of Relativity. He worked for a couple of years at the National Radio Astronomy Observatory located in Charlottesville but he did not enjoy the work and instead joined the Princeton University Plasma Physics Laboratory, with which was associated for many years. Currently, he is a professor at the University of Texas.

Biography/Timeline

1974

In 1974, Hulse and Taylor discovered binary pulsar PSR B1913+16, which is made up of a pulsar and black companion star. Neutron star rotation emits impulses that are extremely regular and stable in the radio wave region and is nearby condensed material body gravitation (non-detectable in the visible field). Hulse, Taylor, and other colleagues have used this first binary pulsar to make high-precision tests of general relativity, demonstrating the existence of gravitational radiation. An approximation of this radiant Energy is described by the formula of the quadrupolar radiation of Albert Einstein (1918).

1975

Hulse was born in New York City and attended Bronx High School of Science and the Cooper Union before moving to University of Massachusetts Amherst (Ph.D. Physics 1975).

1979

In 1979, researchers announced measurements of small acceleration effects of the orbital movements of a pulsar. This was initial proof that the system of these two moving masses emits gravitational waves.

1993

In 1993, Hulse and Taylor shared the Nobel Prize in Physics for the discovery of the first binary pulsar.

2003

Hulse was elected a Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science in 2003, and is cited in the American Men and Women of Science.

2004

In 2004, Hulse joined University of Texas at Dallas and became the Founding Director of UT Dallas Science and Engineering Education Center (SEEC).

2007

In July 2007 Hulse joined the Aurora Imaging Technology advisory board.
