The 2006 Grote Reber Gold Medal will be awarded to Professor B. Y. Mills, one of the early pioneers of radio astronomy. Mills is being honored for his innovative contributions to the development of radio telescopes and for his pioneering investigations of the radio sky which led to the first estimates of the radio galaxy luminosity function and helped to define their spatial distribution. The medal will be presented at a ceremony on August 17, during the IAU General Assembly in Prague.
The Reber Medal was established by the Trustees of the Grote Reber Foundation to honor the achievements of Grote Reber and is administered by the Queen Victoria Museum in Launceston, Tasmania in cooperation with NRAO, the University of Tasmania, and the CSIRO Australia Telescope National Facility.
