The Ig Nobel Prizes honor achievements that first make people laugh, and then make them think.
The 21st annual Ig Nobel Prizes will be awarded on Thursday, September 29th. The tickets to the ceremony at Sanders Theater at Harvard University are sold out, but the presentations will be streamed live at YouTube. Also, if you want to organize a viewing party, the folks at Improbable Research will be glad to help you coordinate it. The theme this year is "CHEMISTRY," which is why the promo video features chemist Daniel Rosenberg, who will perform at the event. Link
