  • Neil Geoffrey Turok (*16 de noviembre de 1958) es un físico sudafricano, director del Instituto Perimeter de Física Teórica de Canadá. Su trabajo se ha desarrollado en el área de la física matemática y la física del universo primitivo, contemplando la constante cosmológica y un universo según el modelo cíclico. No obstante, si se encuentran ondas gravitatorias procedentes del Big Bang, el modelo inflacionario descartaría a la teoría del modelo cíclico.
  • È figlio di Mary (nata Butcher) e Ben Turok (di origine lettone), attivisti bianchi del movimento anti-apartheid e militanti dell'African National Congress. Attualmente ricopre il ruolo di direttore del Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics in Waterloo (Ontario) ed ha ricoperto la cattedra di Fisica matematica (1967) alla Cambridge University fino al 2008. Nel 2008 ha ricevuto il TED Prize per il suo lavoro nella Fisica matematica e per il suo lavoro nell'African Institute for Mathematical Sciences a Muizenberg, Sudafrica.
