Caption: Giacconi's 1987 Wolf Prize in Physics. Italian-US astronomer Riccardo Giacconi (born 1931, left) receiving the 1987 Wolf Prize in Physics from the President of Israel Chaim Herzog (1918-1997, right). Giacconi received this prize for the same reason as his later 2002 Nobel Prize in Physics. Both prizes were awarded for his pioneering work in X-ray astronomy, working on the Uhuru satellite, the Einstein Observatory, and the Chandra X-ray Observatory. From 1981 to 1993, he was the first director of the Space Telescope Science Institute. Photographed in 1987, in the Israeli government building, the Knesset, in Jerusalem, Israel.Restrictions:
