2010 Physics Nobel Prize October 5, 2010Posted by apetrov in Uncategorized.
“That science should be fun, and you don’t always need to do expensive multi-million dollar experiments to be on the cutting edge of research.”
–Konstantin Novoselov, 2010 Nobel Prize winner
As expected, in its annual failure, Thompson Reuters got it wrong in predicting 2010 Nobel Prize in Physics. This year I predicted the same people, so… Anyways, this year’s Nobel Prize is totally deserving. The Nobel Prize in Physics 2010 was awarded jointly to Andre Geim and Konstantin Novoselov “for groundbreaking experiments regarding the two-dimensional material graphene.”
P.S. It is interesting to note that Andrei Geim became the first Grand Slam winner, winning both Ig Nobel and Nobel prizes in physics. The Ig Nobel prize was given to him and to Sir Michael Berry for using magnets to levitate a frog.
