This year’s Nobel Prize will be awarded for a physics discovery that “appears to be of sufficient scientific importance that it will lead to a new understanding of the fundamental forces of nature,” as the Nobel Prize Committee states in its announcement.

The committee announced that it received “numerous requests” from Nobel laureates and others to nominate a physics prize, and that this year’s winner will be announced on February 23, the same day as the U.S. Presidential Election.

The Committee said that the winners will receive $10 million in prize money, but that the award “does not require a single experiment to be run.

The prize will be paid to the individual who achieves the greatest theoretical prediction of the physics theory that underlies the discovery.”

The Prize in Physiology or Medicine, which was established in 1904 to honor Nobel Laureate Max Planck, is one of the largest prizes in physics and is awarded to people who “perform remarkable scientific discoveries, which profoundly affect the life of mankind.”

The Nobel Committee said it would “take into account the seriousness of the discovery, the importance of the achievement, the impact on the field, and the importance and novelty of the result,” in selecting the winner of the prize.

The 2017 Nobel Prize for Physiology, Medicine and Medicine in Physiological Sciences is set to be announced March 8.

The Nobel Prize in Physics was established to honor Albert Einstein in 1948.

In the past, the prizes have been awarded to physicists who had “predicted a general theory of the universe or a general description of the nature of matter,” according to the Nobel Committee.
