We hear that...

**Luis Lehner** has received the Metropolis award from APS ``For developing a
method that significantly advances the capability for modeling
gravitational radiation by making possible the stable numerical solution
of Einstein's equation near moving black holes."

**Beverly Berger** was elected fellow of the APS ``For her pioneering
contributions to global issues in classical general relativity,
particularly the analysis of the nature of cosmological singularities,
and for founding the Topical Group on Gravitation of the APS."

**Joan Centrella** was elected fellow of the APS `` For her original
contributions to numerical relativity, cosmology, and astrophysics, in
particular for her studies of large-scale structure in the universe
and sources of gravitational radiation."

**Ron Drever** was elected fellow of the APS ``For his fundamental experiment
to test the isotropy of space, and for his pioneering contributions to
laser interferometry as a tool for gravitational-wave detection."

**Bernie Schutz** was elected fellow of the APS ``For his pioneering work in
the theory of gravitational radiation, for the discovery of new
instabilities in rotating, relativistic stars, and for elucidating how
gravitational-wave observations can reveal astrophysical and
cosmological information."

**Stu Shapiro** was elected fellow of the APS ``For his broad contributions
to theoretical astrophysics and general relativity,
including the physics of black holes, neutron stars, and large N-body
dynamical systems, and his pioneering use of supercomputers to explore
these areas. "

Our warmest congratulations to them all!
