On Monday, the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine was awarded to three scientists for their "discoveries of how cells sense and adapt to oxygen availability".
Mayor and Queloz of the University of Geneva revolutionized astronomy, the Nobel Committee said, when in 1995 they announced the discovery of a large, gaseous world circling a star 50 light-years from our own sun - the first extrasolar planet found around a sun-like star.
A Swiss duo of astronomers, Mayor and Queloz, have awarded the prestigious prize for their discovery of the first planet beyond our solar system.
Peebles has been retired for 20 years, but he says he has continued to research and teach at a "relaxed rate" because he enjoys it.
Queloz was meeting with other academics interested in finding new planets when the press office at Cambridge University interrupted to tell him the big news: He had won the Nobel.
"My advice to young people entering science: you should do it for the love of science".
Peebles laughed repeatedly when he spoke by telephone with The Associated Press.
Climate protesters request 'ready-to-eat vegan food' from public
Activists blocked traffic in Berlin, where authorities have said they will refrain from making arrests for the time being. In Sydney, about 100 protesters are gathering in Sydney's Hyde Park to begin a second day of demonstrations.

During their chat, DeGeneres plays a video featuring " The Voice " coaches Blake Shelton, Kelly Clarkson and John Legend . Maroon 5 frontman Levine left the show in May after 16 seasons - a move that reportedly outraged NBC execs .
"This discovery revolutionized our understanding of planetary science, led to the discovery of thousands of exoplanets, and spurred the search for extraterrestrial life in the universe", said Gross.
Many were inspired by James Peebles' work in the field of physical cosmology, and some said they hoped to one day stand where the Nobel Prize laureate does today.
"I remember many discussions I'd had with Michel and trying to demonstrate that it was not a planet but in the end we always circled back and said that that's the only explanation". In 1962, he earned a PhD from Princeton University in New Jersey, where he is now the Albert Einstein Professor of Science.
"The Big Bang Theory" made its way into the annals of the Nobel Prizes in real life.
The three men will share a nine-million kronor (C$1.2 million) cash award, a gold medal and a diploma.
All three laureates will travel to Stockholm on December 10 to accept their Nobel medals.
Peebles is the second Canadian in a row to win the physics prize. This year will see two literature Prizes handed out because the one last year was suspended after a scandal rocked the Swedish Academy.
The Nobel Prize in chemistry was awarded Wednesday to John B. Goodenough, M. Stanley Whittingham and Akira Yoshino "for the development of lithium-ion batteries".
Isabel Sander, a second-year physics and astronomy student at the University of Manitoba, said it's inspiring to know that a Nobel Prize victor once walked the same halls she does today.
