    Higg's and Englert take it for the Higg's Boson. Hopefully you've heard about the Higg's Boson.

    They developed a popular computational algorithm to predict chemical stability and reactivity in large molecules (such as biological molecules). It is able to treat some regions quantum mechanically, and approximate less relevant regions with classical mechanics, thus greatly simplifying the problem and reducing computational time.



    Maybe someone else wants to chime in other Nobel prizes. Those aren't my field.

    Didn't Monsanto win a prize too? LOL. Pretty much trivializes the whole award now.

    The peace prize doesn't have that much to do with the rest of the prizes TBH. It's not even given by the same committee.

    Regarding the thread I haven't updated myself on it yet so I have nothing to add.

    And the mod won. :(
    Once Obama was awarded one, I'd be a lot less proud to earn one myself... It's just not holding the same prestige it once had.

    On this picture British physicist Peter Higgs (right) speaks with Belgium physicist Francois Englert of a theory of his on how WingSpam was a much better group than the Beatles.
