Nobel Prize for Physics Awarded for 'Ground-Breaking' Space Discoveries.

Three scientists — Michel Mayor, Didier Queloz and James Peebles — were announced as the winners of the Nobel during Stockholm ceremony.

Queloz and Mayor's work in discovering a planet that orbits a star much like our sun was honored by the committee.

I'm a bit shocked right now, I'm still trying to digest what it means, Didier Queloz, Nobel Prize Recipient, via BBC .

Known as 51 Pegasi b, the exoplanet discovered by Mayor and Queloz was the first found to be orbiting a sun similar to Earth's.

James Peeples' work concerning the evolution of the universe was honored.

It's a life's work, James Peeples, Nobel Prize Recipient, via BBC.

The recipients of the Nobel Prize for Physics will split the 9 million kroner cash award.

The amount is equal to roughly $900,000
