I’ve won a Clarke Award!

Or, to be more precise, the Herschel-SPIRE team has won the 2013 Sir Arthur C Clarke award for Academic Study and Research. This is one of the Clarke awards funded by the Arthur C Clarke Foundation, and not to be confused with the Clarke Awards* for science fiction, funded by other means.

More details can be found on the BIS pages and on the SPIRE team pages.

Hmm, does this mean I can put ‘Sir Arthur C Clarke award winner’ on any fiction books I publish?

*Interestingly, the top hit on google that you get for Clarke Award seems to be a domain squatting operation. Tom Hunter should be told.
