Honors. (Letters).

Science News astronomy writer Ron Cowen is a recipient of the third David N. Schramm award for distinguished writing on high-energy astrophysics. Cowen and one other writer share the honor and a $1,500 prize, to be awarded at a ceremony March 25 during a meeting of the High Energy Astrophysics Division (HEAD) of the American Astronomical Society. HEAD sponsors the award, which it presents every 18 months.

In announcing the selection, HEAD cited Cowen's article "Jet Astronomy" (SN: 11/9/02, p. 299) as writing "that improves the general public's understanding in and appreciation of" high-energy astrophysics.
