Juan Luis Arsuaga believes that this year there have been two Princess of Asturias awards who have broken the last frontier. He knows exactly what that is since he discovered in Atapuerca the oldest European known. For the researcher and paleontologist are Reinhold Messner, the mountaineer who together with the Polish Krzysztof Wielicki has won the sports award and Svante Päävo, Scientific and Technical Research: "One showed us that you could climb Everest without oxygen and the other has open a new world to investigate the species, populations and the world from DNA ".
