Nobel Prize alternative celebrates the funny and unusual

Video duration: 1:48

Every year at a gala ceremony in Harvard’s Sanders Theater the Ig Nobel prizes are awarded for achievements in science that first make people laugh, then think. Actual Nobel laureates are drafted to present awards to research into subjects like the effects of opera on mouse heart-transplant patients and the phenomenon commonly known as “beer goggles.”
