Later, Milosz's poems are placed on the monument to fallen shipyard workers in Gda sk.. 1981 CPU design.. Computer scientist David Patterson directs a project that produces a simpler, cheaper, faster approach to the design of computer central processing units (CPUs)..

Mary-Claire King and her colleagues at Berkeley find a gene that is strongly linked to breast cancer in families with high risk of the disease before age 45.. 1992 Revolution in telescope design.. UC astronomers led by Jerry Nelson co-develop the world's largest telescope, the W.. M.. Keck Telescope, atop Mauna Kea, a dormant volcano on the island of Hawaii.. Revolutionary in design, the Keck's primary mirror is composed of 36 hexagonal segments that join to form a single, honeycombed piece of reflective glass.. 1994 Spousal rape law.. Raping one's spouse becomes a felony in California, a crime legally equivalent to non-marital rape.. The law is the brainchild of Berkeley lecturer Nancy Lemon.. 1995 U.. Poet laureate..

He is later awarded the National Book Award and the Pulitzer Prize for his 2007 book.. Time and Materials.. 1995 to present Planet hunt.. Astronomer Geoff Marcy is a pioneer and leader in the discovery of planets beyond our own solar system.. With the discovery of more than 200 exoplanets, Marcy's efforts to find and characterize their orbits and masses leads to a new understanding of the formation of planets and planetary systems.. 1998 An accelerating universe.. Observing distant, ancient exploding stars, Berkeley cosmologists Saul Perlmutter, Adam Riess, Alex Filippenko and international colleagues determine that the universe is expanding at an accelerating rate a striking, counter-intuitive observation that implies the existence of a mysterious, self-repelling property of space known as dark energy.. 1998 Peace Corps volunteers.. UC Berkeley enlists its 3,000th Peace Corps volunteer, more than from any other university.. 2000 Nobel in economics..

Berkeley's library houses the world's largest collection of Twain's writings, photos, scrapbooks, and books from his personal library.. 2006 Medicine for malaria.. A group led by chemical engineer Jay Keasling clears a major hurdle to creating a widely affordable version of the life-saving antimalarial drug artemisinin.. He does this by successfully engineering the production of artemisinic acid, which is one chemical alteration away from artemisinin.. 2006 The seeds of the modern universe.. In 1992, a team led by cosmologist George Smoot obtains the earliest images of the infant universe and observes minute variations in temperature across the sky, revealing the early beginnings of galaxies and clusters of galaxies.. These findings confirm the predictions of the Big Bang theory.. In 2006, Smoot is awarded the Nobel Prize in Physics, becoming the most recent of Berkeley's 20 Nobel laureates.. 2007 Biofuels.. Energy giant BP selects UC Berkeley to lead a $500 million effort to develop biofuels to help meet the world's energy needs.. 2000 to present Satellite operations..
