  • The 2017 physics Nobel prize was awarded for the detection of gravitational waves.
  • The trio have been honoured for their work on constructing Ligo and the detection of gravitational waves – follow the live reaction here
  • Independently, Ronald Drever, a Scottish physicist, also began building prototype detectors in Glasgow and after moving to Caltech, he, Weiss and Thorne formed a trio that laid the groundwork for Ligo.
  • In the future, scientists hope to supernovae, pulsars and the insides of stars as they collapse into black holes.
  • Gravitational waves were of course predicted by Einstein but he never received a Nobel for relativity.
  • As for solving Einstein's equatiions to arrive at the prediction, all you need is basic knowledge of calculus and tensor algebra (done in undergraduate physics courses, like I did as a teenager).
  • There have been lots of black hole mergers all over the universe, but only a tiny fraction with precisely matching age and distance to let us detect them.
  • Of course These 3 Americans fully deserve the Nobel Prize for physics.

  • Scientists share prize awarded for discoveries of molecular mechanisms controlling circadian rhythms – the body’s inner clock – fundamental to human health
  • The Nobel prize for medicine or physiology was awarded for research on the body’s clock, which is at work in all multicellular life.
  • In 1984, Jeffrey Hall and Michael Rosbash at Brandeis University in Waltham, Massachusetts, studied the period gene and the protein the body makes from it.
  • He discovered a second body clock gene that is used to make a protein called TIM.
  • Relatedly, it appears that all living beings sleep during part of that cycle although the length and type of sleep varies between species.
  • There are many more rhythms to our lives than one circadian rhythm.
  • Sleep patterns are enforced by industrial society to fit it with daylight hours.
  • The science prizes (and the literature price) has little to do with the peace price, except the founder and the name.
  • I think 35 women have won the Nobel Prize for subjects excluding Peace.
