The Ig Nobel Prizes honor achievements that make people LAUGH, then THINK.

In 1999, Dr. Len Fisher was awarded the Ig Nobel in Physics for calculating the optimal way to dunk a biscuit. The same year, Steve Penfold was awarded the Ig Nobel in Sociology for his PhD thesis on the sociology of Canadian donut shops. In this moment, the two awardees’ work meet in a surreal crossroads.

This is a glimpse from a past ceremony, tune in to see what this year will bring.

The 30th First Annual Ig Nobel Prize Ceremony will be webcast September 17, 2020 at www.improbablecom.wpcomstaging.com
