Announcing the 2016 Ig Nobel Prize winners!

Ten new Ig Nobel Prizes were awarded last night (September 22, 2016), at the 26th First Annual Ig Nobel Prize ceremony, at Harvard University’s Sanders Theatre. The prizes honor achievements that make people LAUGH, then THINK.

Here’s video of the entire ceremony:

Tomorrow, the new Ig Nobel Prize winners will give short public talks, and answer questions:

UPDATE (Sept 24): In this photo, the new Ig Nobel Prize winners bask in applause at the conclusion to the Ig Informal Lectures at MIT. Kneeling in front of them are the four fly-swatter-wielding timekeepers, plus two official Confused Bystanders.
