  1. Congratulations to Mike ! This is great news.
    Another member of our community/society is rewarded with a great recognition.
    50 years after the invention of the CCD Image Sensor, the Emmy goes to the person that started solid-state imaging with CCDs. Enjoy the honour you get.
    A HUGE hi-five, not only from me, but from our complete society.
