We'll find out in exactly a week if the literature prize will be announced the 5th during Nobel week or on the 12th. I'm thinking the 5th. Also, any prediction for the other nobels?

Kip Thorne and Rainer Weiss for gravitational waves.
Sumio Iijima for carbon nanotubes.
Hideo Hosono for iron-based superconductors.
Stephen Harris and Lene Hau for slow light.


John Goodenough, M. Stanley Whittingham, and Akira Yoshino for lithium batteries (the ones I want the most to win).
Emmanuelle Charpentier, Jennifer Doudna, and Feng Zhang for CRISPR (can be for medicine).
Franz-Ulrich Hartl and Arthur Horwich for chaperones.
Alec Jeffreys for DNA fingerprinting (can be for medicine).


Mary-Claire King and Michael Stratton for BRCA1 and BRCA2.
Kazutoshi Mori and Peter Walter for unfolded protein response.
Alexander Rudensky, Shimon Sakaguchi, and Ethan Shevach for regulatory T cells.
Akira Endo for statin drugs.

Peace (I don't really care about this award)
