Nobel and Ig Nobel Awards 2007

During this week’s show (to download show, see below), we gave you some of the highlights of Ig Noble Awards. That aside, Nobel Prize Winners names are trickling into the infosphere – definitely worth checking out.

This year’s Nobel prize for Medicine went to Capecchi, Evans and Smithies for their use of embryonic stem cells to target particular genes, allowing for genetic modification to take place.

Tomorrow, Oct. 9th, the awards for Physics will be given out, and Literature, Chemistry and Peace are to follow.
