Scientist-musician Saul Perlmutter wins Nobel Prize

by Eva Amsen

Happy to hear that Saul Perlmutter has won a Nobel Prize today! We met at SciFoo 2010 and I’ve spoken with him last year (and earlier this year, according to my email archives) about a music-in-physics course he organised. He’s also a musician himself, and plays violin. Congrats to Saul, and I will schedule an interview once I make my way out of the backlog of other things. (Same goes for the 15 or so other people who I promised to catch up with and who may not have won any Nobel Prizes.)
