Here come the Nobel prizes

Once yearly, the Nobel Foundation awards its prizes in physics, chemistry, medicine, literature and peace. (Other "Nobel" prizes, such as the prize in economics, were established in memory of Alfred Nobel, but are not part of Nobel's will.) Starting on Monday, the 2007 prizes will be announced, culminating with the Nobel Peace Prize on the 13th of October.

Who will win? I really don't know -- I can make some guesses for the physics prize, but they would almost certainly be wrong. However, when the prize in physics is announced, I'll see what I can do about explaining the research.

Also, October 5 will feature the awarding of the 2006 Ig Nobel Prizes from Improbable Research. Stay tuned for news from there, too!
