Pipped by the Igs

| Comments

I’d like to take just a moment to celebrate Andre Geim, the first person to win both a Nobel and and Ig Nobel. He won this year’s Nobel Prize in Physics for creating a sheet of carbon one atom thick - using scotch tape. He won an Ig Nobel back in 2000 for levitating a frog with magnets. Apparently you can repel water with magnetic fields, and a frog is mostly water. Who knew?

I’d just like to note, for the record, that the Ig Nobels found him first.
