Ig Nobel Prizes
First Laugh, Then Think!
Episode 3: Tumbling toast

The winning paper "Tumbling toast, Murphy's Law and the fundamental constants" takes the reader to the origin of the problem, namely the Big Bang. Winner in the field of Physics in 2007.
Ig Nobel Prizes are the not-so-well-known alternative of the famous Nobel Prizes. Each year since 1989, ten scientists receive prizes for "research that makes people LAUGH and then THINK". Watch six scientists and their studies about the most important subjects of our daily life: having sex, food, money, death, and having sex again.
