The Week in Review: Magazines for Nobel Laureate Wannabes

Inside Flipboard / October 11, 2013


It’s been a big week for a select few of the world’s leading scientists and artists as the recipients of the 2013 Nobel Prizes have been announced. First awarded in 1901, the Nobel Prize is the world’s most prestigious honor recognizing outstanding achievement in the fields of literature, medicine, physics, chemistry, peace and economics.

This week, author Alice Munro won the 2013 Nobel Prize for Literature. François Englert and Peter W. Higgs won the Physics prize for their work to reveal the Higgs boson particle. A team of researchers won the Chemistry prize for their work to model complex chemical reactions with computers, while the prize in Medicine went to a team that identified how critical molecules are transported within cells.
