Physics Prize Announced.

The Nobel Prize in Physics was announced earlier today.

Here's my bold prediction. The Nobel Prize in Chemistry will be awarded this year to Gabor Somorjai at UC Berkeley. Anyone else willing to make a bold, Nobel Prize prediction? (Humor/sarcasm is also welcome.)

The Nobel Prize in chemistry will go to Dr. Pepper. Anyone who can make an addictive drink legal and make millions deserves an award.

Well, Mukamel and Zare must be pissed about the physics one...

I think that Barry Carpenter, Charlie Lieber, Paul Alivasatos, and Bawendi may be in the running too.

Mukamel?!?! Zare, I can agree with, but Mukamel?!?! C'mon, you've got to be kidding me... Shaul's a good scientist, but a nobel prize? Puh-leeze.

I don't think nano stuff will get it yet. It's too early. Pete Schultz will get it before those guys do, I can guarantee you of that. How about Moerner and Orrit for single molecule work?

Huh...I wish Mukamel had won it. That way I could say I took a class on the theory of nonlinear optical spectroscopy from a Nobel Laureate.

I couldn't say I understood all of it, but I could say I took it.

Shaul's book is pretty good. I can only imagine how good a class with him would be. There are other guys at UCI, however, that are far more deserving of the prize.

My son has pooped granny smith apple green two sessions in a row. You of all people can appreciate the fascinating and captivating power of odd colored feces. However he managed this, he deserves the biggest imaginable prize for science.
