We’ve heard that 2 of the nobel prizes this year have been named and there will be more this month. The findings they are awarded for and the stories they tell are always interesting. They seem to spread out the announcements over a month though to get maximum press value out of it. I never would have though of the Nobel people as being marketers but I guess everyone is at some level right? to find out the Chemistry and Physicis winners for 2006 as well as some history on the awards, see the Nobel Prize website.
