The Nobel Prize in Literature for 2017 is awarded to Kazuo Ishiguro "who, in novels of great emotional force, has uncovered the abyss beneath our illusory sense of connection with the world".

Nobel physicist Kip Thorne has some film credentials, as he was involved in developing the concept for Contact and Interstellar, and he was credited as an executive producer for Interstellar. He was also portrayed as a minor character in The Theory of Everything.

Postby Greg » Wed Oct 04, 2017 6:18 pm

This is Nobel Prize week. The awards so far:

The Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine 2017 was awarded to Jeffrey C. Hall, Michael Rosbash and Michael W. Young "for their discoveries of molecular mechanisms controlling the circadian rhythm."

The Nobel Prize in Physics 2017 was divided, one half awarded to Rainer Weiss, the other half jointly to Barry C. Barish and Kip S. Thorne "for decisive contributions to the LIGO detector and the observation of gravitational waves."

The Nobel Prize in Chemistry 2017 was awarded to Jacques Dubochet, Joachim Frank and Richard Henderson "for developing cryo-electron microscopy for the high-resolution structure determination of biomolecules in solution."

The Literature Prize is tomorrow, Peace is Friday, and, Economics is Monday.
