Summary

This chapter discusses that the author receives a number of awards, but he was particularly honored to be elected a fellow of the Royal Society of London in 1985. Next to the Nobel Prize, this is the most distinguished scientific honor one can receive in Great Britain. The Royal Society was inaugurated in 1662 by King Charles II, and since then every British monarch has been a patron of the Society since its inception. The chapter also includes an original document that he received from the Society.
