"Through his work and new ways to observe and measure our universe, cosmology evolved into a science of precision", Larsson said.

Peebles laughed repeatedly when he spoke by telephone with The Associated Press.

"This is what I want to do in the future, is [to] make discoveries that help us basically move forward as a society - and that's exactly what [Peebles] did", she said.

He added that he looked forward to travelling to the Swedish capital with his wife and children to accept the prize. "From the beginning, I have always had colleagues".

In 1995, Mayor and Queloz announced the first discovery of a planet outside our solar system.

Notoriously modest and focused on his work, Peebles noted that he's been retired for 20 years but continues to research and teach at a "relaxed rate" because he enjoys it. Since their discovery, thousands more exoplanets have been discovered by the astronomy community. Mayor recalled that "no one knew whether exoplanets existed or not".

"We were as surprised as everybody to find a planet because the planet that we found was absolutely freaky and it's not at all the way you would have expected a planet to be", Queloz told AFP Tuesday. He thought it was joke at first.

"When I started working in this subject - I can tell you the date, 1964 - at the invitation of my mentor, Professor Robert Henry Dicke, I was very uneasy about going into this subject because the experimental observational basis was so modest". "It's enormous. It's beyond usual emotions". My hand used to be shaking for a truly very long time. "I'm trying to digest it".

"He's known to be a big thinker", says Christopher O'Dea, a physics professor at the University of Manitoba, "leading people to where the big questions are".

"One of my earliest memories is throwing a tantrum because I was not allowed to get into the coffee percolator", he said.

The trio will share a nine-million kronor cash award (£742,864), a gold medal and a diploma. In one of the best examples of "life imitating art", a Nobel Prize announcement might have contained what can easily be related to the TV sitcom and it was all kinds of perfection.

After Marie Curie in 1903 and German-American scientist Maria Goeppert-Mayer in 1963, Strickland became just the third woman to be awarded the Physics Prize since 1901.
