Nobel prizes 2010

Hi!! friends i'm back with a list of nobel awards which are declared.
Firstly we should know about nobel awards. i know that every one knows what is a nobel award.
.
.
.
Any of the prizes (five in number until 1969, when a sixth was added) that are awarded annually from a fund bequeathed for that purpose by the Swedish inventor and industrialist Alfred Bernhard Nobel. The Nobel Prizes are widely regarded as the most prestigious awards given for intellectual achievement in the world.

In the will he drafted in 1895, Nobel instructed that most of his fortune be set aside as a fund for the awarding of five annual prizes “to those who, during the preceding year, shall have conferred the greatest benefit on mankind.” These prizes as established by his will are the Nobel Prize for Physics, the Nobel Prize for Chemistry, the Nobel Prize for Physiology or Medicine, the Nobel Prize for Literature, and the Nobel Prize for Peace. The first distribution of the prizes took place on Dec. 10, 1901, the fifth anniversary of Nobel's death. An additional award, the Sveriges Riksbank Prize in Economic Sciences in Memory of Alfred Nobel, was established in 1968 by the Bank of Sweden and was first awarded in 1969. Although not technically a Nobel Prize, it is identified with the award; its winners are announced with the Nobel Prize recipients, and the Prize in Economic Sciences is presented at the Nobel Prize Award Ceremony.

So, now i think that you got a summary about nobel awards.
Now here i give a list of nobel awards 2010. One important thing here is that till now Nobel prizes are announced only in 2 areas i.e.,


Nobel award in PHYSICS:
           The Nobel Prize in Physics 2010 was awarded jointly to Andre Geim and Konstantin Novoselov "for groundbreaking experiments regarding the two-dimensional material graphene"
 Andre Geim:(right) is a Russian-born Dutch physicist. On October 5, 2010, he was awarded the 2010 Nobel Prize in Physics. Andre Geim was born in October 1958 in Sochi in a German family. his parents—Konstantin Alekseyevich Geim (1910) and Nina Nikolayevna Bayer (1927)—were both engineers.Since 2007 he has been an EPSRC Senior Research Fellow.[9][10] He is also a professor of innovative materials and nanoscience at the Radboud University in Nijmegen (The Netherlands) since 2010.
 Konstantin Sergeevich Novoselov:(left) is a Russian-British physicist. Kostya Novoselov was born in Nizhny Tagil, Russia, in 1974.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Konstantin_Novoselov


Nobel prize in medicine:
The Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine 2010 was awarded to Robert G. Edwards "for the development of in vitro fertilization".
Robert Geoffrey Edwards,  (born 27 September 1925, Manchester) is a British biologist and pioneer in reproductive biology and medicine, and in-vitro fertilization (IVF) in particular. Along with surgeon Patrick Steptoe (1913 – 1988), Edwards successfully pioneered conception through IVF, which led to the birth of the first test-tube baby, Louise Brown, on 25 July 1978. He won the 2010 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine "for the development of in vitro fertilization". So he is the inventor of test tube baby.

so another joke here to post is 

.
.
Sherlock Holmes and Dr Watson go on a camping trip. After a good dinner and a bottle of wine, they retire for the night, and go to sleep. 
Some hours later, Holmes wakes up and nudges his faithful friend. “Watson, look up at the sky and tell me what you see.”

“I see millions and millions of stars, Holmes” replies Watson.

“And what do you deduce from that?”

Watson ponders for a minute. “Well,

Astronomically, it tells me that there are millions of galaxies and potentially billions of planets.

 

Astrologically, I observe that Saturn is in Leo.
 

Horologically, I deduce that the time is approximately a quarter past three.

Meteorologically, I suspect that we will have a beautiful day tomorrow.

Theologically, I can see that God is all powerful, and that we are a small and insignificant part of the universe.
.

.
But what does it tell you, Holmes?”
.
Holmes is silent for a moment.
.
“Watson, you idiot!” he says. “Someone has stolen our tent!”
