This coming week (Oct 8, 9 and 10) the science Nobel Prizes will be announced. To us nerds, it is a big deal. I for one, always get excited. Sometimes there is even drama in these events. Last year, for example one of he laureates was selected, but he passed away before the prizes were announced. That’s right, he never knew he was a Nobelist.
To join the celebration of this year’s awards I updated one of my blog posts in which I tell the story of when I met a Nobel Laureate (in person!).
