Worlds collided at Moffett Field Sunday night, as the annual Breakthrough Prize brought together luminaries from three sometimes disparate walks of life: the sciences, Silicon Valley and Hollywood.
Oscar-winner Morgan Freeman hosted the Dec. 3 ceremony, which featured a performance by Wiz Khalifa and Nana Ou-Yang. Katie Ladecky, the star swimmer from Stanford University, was among those who handed out the $3 million prizes for achievements in life sciences, fundamental physics and mathematics.
In the shadow of Hangar One, gussied-up guests walked the red carpet and headed into a giant tent where a total of $22 million in prize money was awarded, including $250,000 to Junior Challenge winner Hillary Diane Andales, 18, of the Philippines.
Event sponsors were Sergey Brin, Yuri and Julia Milner, Mark Zuckerberg and Priscilla Chan, Anne Wojcicki and Pony Ma.
