FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
THE ANGSTROM FOUNDATION
FOUNDER, RICHARD C. HOAGLAND, FOR IMPLICATIONS
STEMMING FROM CONTROVERSIAL MARS INVESTIGATION
Lars-Jonas Angstrom, head of the Angstrom Foundation of Sweden, presented the prestigious Angstrom medal, for the first time outside of Sweden, for excellence in science, to Richard C. Hoagland today in Washington, D.C. For the past 80 years, the metal has been awarded to scientist in Sweden, primarily for achievement in the field of physics, or to encourage significant future achievements based on current work.
The Board of the Angstrom Foundation decided to award this year's medal to Mr. Hoagland for those aspects of the Mars investigation relating to "hyperdimensional physics": this area of study is based on Mr. Hoagland's, and his colleagues', successful decoding of a redundant mathematics and geometry found in a complex of potential artifacts on the planet Mars.
Lars Angstrom in the great-grandson of Anders-Jonas Angstrom, professor in astronomy and physics at Uppsala University, after whom the international standard for the measurement of electromagnetic radiation "the angstrom" is named. Knut Angstrom, Lars Angstrom's grandfather, also a professor in physics, was proposed for a Nobel prize for his work in the field of radiation physics. Tord Angstrom, Mr. Angstrom's father, was the first Swedish civil aviator.
The Angstrom Foundation was created in 1988 by L.J. Angstrom to further the family tradition of encouraging excellence in science. Its goals are to broaden awareness of significant multidisciplinary achievement in the international scientific community, and to invite collaborative problem-solving based on possible breakthroughs in fundamental knowledge. Prior to the creation of the Foundation, the medal was awarded by the University of Uppsala.
