Dr. Daniel Altschuler

The 2010 Andrew Gemant Award was presented to Dr. Daniel Altschuler for his decades of work bringing the excitement and beauty of physics and astronomy to the 4 million people of Puerto Rico, through his creation of The Angel Ramos Foundation Visitor Center at the Arecibo Observatory, his books and his own translations of them into Spanish, and through his popular articles, blog, and workshops for teachers and journalists.

Altschuler has designated the UNESCO Chair for Peace Education in Puerto Rico to receive the portion of this award that goes towards furthering public communication of physics.
