THE NOBEL: Temporary hiccup or final decline?

August 5, 2018


The recent revelations in the media about what goes on behind the scenes at the organization that gives out the Nobel Prize in Literature are indeed shocking. But in terms of the harm done to our society and to our civilization, these are mere misdemeanors compared to what has gone on behind the scenes at the organization that gives out the Nobel Prize in Physics.

The ongoing public humiliation of LIGO Nobelist Kip Thorne

July 22, 2018


Remember the public spectacle of Kip Thorne’s humiliation at the Nobel banquet procession telecast worldwide? (See the second figure below.) Well, that was not the last of it.

Now he has been publicly humiliated in his own land, in his own hometown. Here is the news article I quote from. Note in the Comment section a puzzled reader asks: Why not officially rename it (The Boulevard)?

A Nobel Laureate undergoing sequential public humiliation. Now that’s what I call society’s revenge.

NEXT CASEBOOK UP: Physicsville Memorials

Folks, the NSF review of LIGO has just taken place. NSF Director France Cordova was very much in evidence there, and was all smiley smiley and all chummy chummy with the Ligo leaders. Judging from this, LIGO will get great moneys to greatly expand and make grander discoveries yet. This unstoppable crime will continue apace. I am at my wit’s end. I don’t know what else to do to stop this criminal activity taking place under the guise of legitimacy.
