This years Nobel goes to the very deserving Cosmologist Jim Peebles for "theoretical discoveries in physical cosmology" to be shared with Michel Mayor and Didier Queloz for "discovery of an exoplanet orbiting a solar-type star."

I have Jim Peebles book Principles of Physical Cosmology. He pretty much founded the field.
