Rarely do young scientists grow up dreaming of someday winning an Ig Nobel Prize
But on Thursday the “Annals of Improbable Research” will present the quirky science awards at Harvard University.
At the ceremony, two scientists, geologists Lisa Danielson and Will Stefanov of Arizona State University, will actually get married in a 60-second wedding.
Marriage is not the only item on the agenda. Ten winners have real Nobel laureates present them prizes honoring all manner of scientific endeavors.
Past recipients of Ig Nobel Prizes include the creator of the pink plastic flamingo and the couple that invented a way to help women give birth more easily by spinning them rapidly.
