For years, the Ig Nobel Awards have been famous for celebrating the most offbeat and ludicrous forms of scientific discovery. And last night, I was lucky enough to attend the 2015 Ig Nobel ceremony, because a friend was the proud winner of an Ig Nobel.
The Ig Nobel Prizes were awarded last night! It's that fun time of year when we get to enjoy scientists' geektastic senses of humor.
The alternative Nobel Prize awards, the Ig Nobels, have been called for another year, with this particular winner making everyone laugh with an rc helicopter that collects whales' mucus and breath. A deserving winner, I think you might agree.
