CWN Editor's Note: Steve Chu (biography), a professor at Stanford University, won the Nobel Prize for Physics in 1997 and was US Energy Secretary from 2009 to 2013. The academy, whose membership is open to non-Christians, is a consultative body and not an organ of the Church’s teaching authority; it was founded in 1603 and reconstituted in 1936.
