First Nobel Prizes Awarded (1901)

The Nobel Prizes, named after Swedish chemist Alfred Nobel, are awarded annually to those who have made outstanding contributions to the fields of physics, chemistry, physiology or medicine, literature, peace, and—since 1969—economic sciences. Nobel is said to have been inspired to create the prizes after reading his own prematurely published obituary, which condemned his invention of dynamite and referred to him as "the merchant of death." What family has amassed the most Nobel Prizes? More...

Mosers, the fourth couple to win a Nobel jointly; the first, Marie and Pierre Curie

Stockholm: Oct 06, 2014 at 08:41pm IST

Norwegian couple Mary-Britt Moser and her husband Edvard I Moser was awarded the Nobel Prize for Physiology or Medicine this year, along with British-American scientist John O Keefe, for discovering an 'inner GPS, in the brain,' that prompts navigational activity in all creatures.
Mary-Britt Moser and Edvard I Moser is the fifth couple to have won a Nobel, and the fourth couple to share it jointly.
The first couple to have won a Nobel prize was Marie Curie and her husband Pierre Curie in the year 1903. Interestingly, the Curies were a very successful Nobel Prize family. The Curie's daughter Irene Joliot Curie also won a Nobel prize for Chemistry along with her husband Fredrich Joliot in 1935 for their discovery of new radioactive isotopes prepared artificially.

This year, the laureates' discovery might facilitate a better and much needed understanding of the mechanism underpinning the devastating spatial memory loss that affects people with Alzheimer's disease.
The Nobel awards in physics, chemistry, literature and peace will be announced later this week. The economics prize will be announced next Monday.

So I ask, is the prize forth very much, or is it just something to allow people to "toot their horns" over?

I agree with Striker. Their record is blotched with 'Oh....he Is a dictator after all'.
