Taipei, June 11 (CNA) An astronomy professor from the United States received an award in Taiwan on Tuesday that recognizes young scholars who have contributed to the field of astronomy or astrophysics. The Young Astronomer Lectureship Award, jointly presented by National Central University and the Taiwan-based Delta Electronics Foundation, was presented to Christopher Reynolds, a professor from the University of Maryland. Reynolds will receive part of a NT$1 million (US$33,493) stipend that goes to the award's two to three winners every year. This year's other winners will be named in the coming months. Awardees are expected to spend at least two weeks in Taiwan and give a speech at National Central University and another at a designated high school. Reynolds, who is also the director of his university's Joint Space Science Institute, will give a speech at National Central University on June 14 and another at National Taichung First Senior High School on June 15. Both speeches will be related to the topic of the black hole, which Reynolds specializes in, the university said. (By Christie Chen)
