And in more substantial news 

Nobel prizes were awarded yesterday.

The physics prize was awarded to three guys who worked on superconductivity and superfluidity.

I always thought it strange that some years the Prize might be awarded for work that's only a few years old (Ketterle et. al for Bose-Einstein condensation) while some years it might be awarded for work that's decades old (Chandrasekhar for his work in astrophysics and general relativity).
