THE REAL HEROES OF LIGO


Folks, Kip Thorne has just received a big Belgian prize (Prix Georges Lemaître). And yes, the 2017 Nobel Prize for physics is already baked into LIGO. Thorne says he is the “face” of LIGO and will accept the 2017 Nobel Prize as the “icon” of LIGO.

Add these monikers to his earlier declaration that he is a “historical figure”, and the Nobel Prize would seem a shoo-in, a slam-dunk, a sure bet. It is practically in the bag.
