THURSDAY: The 26th First Annual Ig Nobel Prize ceremony (and webcast)

The 26th First Annual Ig Nobel Prize ceremony happens tomorrow, Thursday, September 22, 2016, beginning at 6 pm (US eastern time).

A very few TICKETS for the ceremony might become available — check the Harvard Box Office for those.

The webcast begins at 5:40 pm, with the ceremony itself beginning at 6:00.

The theme of this year’s ceremony (though not necessarily of the things that win prizes!) is TIME. The ceremony will include the premiere of a new mini-opera, “The Last Second”, about a plot to secretly add an extra leap second to the world’s clocks, and secretly reap the financial benefits.
