Since announcing detection of gravitational wave in February, the LIGO Org has received several prizes:

a. Special Breakthrough Prize in Fundamental Physics - "The Special Breakthrough Prize can be awarded at any time in recognition of an exceptional scientific achievement. The $3 million prize will be shared as follows: the three LIGO founders -- Ronald W.P. Drever (Caltech); Kip S. Thorne (Caltech); and Rainer Weiss (MIT) -- will share $1 million; and the 1012 contributing scientists, engineers, and staff will share $2 million -

b. The 2016 Gruber Prize in Cosmology - Ronald W.P. Drever (Caltech), Kip S. Thorne (Caltech), and Rainer Weiss (MIT) will each receive a gold medal and will share a $500,000 award. The Prize citation reads: "The Gruber Foundation proudly presents the 2016 Cosmology Prize to Rainer Weiss, Kip Thorne, Ronald Drever, and the entire LIGO team for pursuing a vision to observe the universe in gravitational waves, leading to a first detection that emanated from the collision of two black holes. This remarkable event provided the first glimpse into the strong‐gravity regime of Einstein's theory of general relativity that governs the dynamics of black holes, giving direct evidence for their existence, and demonstrating that their nature is consistent with the predictions of general relativity." -

c. 天文學獎 平均頒予羅奈爾特.德雷弗 (Ronald W P Drever), 基普.索恩 (Kip S Thorne) 和雷納.韋斯 (Rainer Weiss)

There may be several more coming....and then the Nobel Prize
