From TFA: Speaking to the prize committee by phone Wednesday morning, Frank said he had thought the chance of him winning the prestigious honor was "minuscule."

You gotta love a funny science person.

/He made a little joke.

Yeah, a bit of false humility humor there.  These guys were on a very short list and everyone, including them, knew it.

/Still wondering on when CRISPR gets recognized.  LIGO was a gimme.

"The United States has, since the Second World War, allowed scientists to perform fundamental research, to focus on important questions in science - not forcing them to immediate applications, not controlling them in a political way. And that freedom, combined with very good resources, has been very helpful to the United States."

The Pope of Manwich Village: "The United States has, since the Second World War, allowed scientists to perform fundamental research, to focus on important questions in science - not forcing them to immediate applications, not controlling them in a political way. "


Except for:

Fetal stem cells
Gun violence
Weed, LSD, etc.

What did I miss?

Prof. Dubochet was an important collaborator and mentor of mine.  The hallways of his old lab were decorated with the covers of Science and Nature, which displayed microscopy images his group took over the years.  One of his long term staff scientists, Marc Adrian, sadly passed away four years ago and was unable to see so much of the work he performed lead to a Nobel prize.
Well deserved award in my opinion.
