I’m heading to the “Oscars of Science” this weekend – ✨the 8th Annual #breakthroughprize Ceremony ✨– to celebrate the brightest discoveries in Physics🔭, Mathematics➗, and Life Sciences 🔬!! [ad] . This year 7 prizes are being awarded, each valued at $3 million... making this the largest individual monetary prize in science! 🎉 Awardees include: . 🏆 the 347 scientists who published the first-ever image of a black hole back in April (including Dr. Katie Boumann!) . 🏆 Alex Eskin, a mathematician who worked alongside the late Maryam Mirzakhani on the magic wand theorem . 🏆 Virginia Man-Yee Lee, leader in studying how tau tangles and other misfolded proteins advance neurodegenerative diseases like Parkinson’s and ALS . 🏆 & many more going up in my stories today! . Each prize has a fascinating story of science and discovery behind it, and I’m beyond honoured I get to share them with you!! From the many challenges the researchers faced to those tiny eureka 💡 moments that kept them going along their long path of discovery, expect some major inspo and of course lotsa cool mysteries to be curious about ☺️ . . 🗓️NOTE THE SCHEDULE🗓️ . Today I’ll be posting interactive stories about some of the main discoveries behind each prize on my account, and taking over the ✨@chanzuckerberginitiative✨ stories to share the rest! .

Red carpet realness at the 🏆Breakthrough Prize 🏆[ad] . Still in shock over how epic last weekend was celebrating breakthrough research in physics, math & life sciences that fit the theme of “Seeing the Invisible” ✨ It was really cool to see so many celebrities get excited about new research, and use their spotlight to share the importance of science! . Listening to the scientists’ acceptance speeches, I noticed a common theme: all of their discoveries started as small but gnawing curiosities that compounded over time til they couldn’t be ignored. . David Julius was curious about the deliciously dangerous spicy peppers found in nature… who would’ve thought asking questions about peppers would lead him to discovering key pathways of pain in our bodies, and hopefully one day better pain treatments with fewer side effects. . The curiosities of Hartl & Hurlich led them to a transatlantic collaboration that challenged MAJOR dogma in cell biology when they discovered that proteins re-fold in the mitochondria thanks to special “chaperone” proteins. In their acceptance speeches, they said they were terrified to first publish it because if they were wrong, “they’d be a joke!” . Each winner was also very real about the setbacks and failures along the long road to their prize. Virginia Man-Yee Lee switched fields from industry back to academic research, having to overcome her fair share of naysayers in the process. . Shep Doeleman, head of the team who gave us the first-ever picture of a black hole, had been working on getting the image for OVER A DECADE... & I’m told working with high altitude telescopes to capture rare cosmic events is exactly as unchill as it sounds. . The research process ain’t glamorous, so a glamorous night to celebrate some wins was definitely in order & I’m grateful @chanzuckerberginitiative invited me to join in! . Currently writing a blog post that goes into more detail about some of this research, but for now

Heading in to London because tonight is the grand finale to this year's #greattasteawards! @guildoffinefood lay on an epic feast to celebrate producers and announce the coveted Golden Fork trophies (awarded to the best in each category!). It's always an honour to judge at the awards and even more so to be asked to sit on the final panel amongst these distinguished faces from the food and drink world! A real pinch yourself moment. Thanks @guildoffinefood for having me in your ranks and good luck to all the producers there tonight! May the best food win... #greattasteawards#awardsceremony#workinginfood#goldenfork @sampellyphotography
