(Ig) Nobel prizes

October 9, 2010

I’ve been meaning to cross-post this from my work blog, but I kept forgetting:

So this is cool: Andre Geim, one of the winners of this year’s Nobel Prize for Physics was also one of the winners of the 2000 Ig Nobel Prize for Physics. (The Nobel was for experiments with graphene, the Ig Nobel was for using magnets to levitate a frog.)
