    Three scientists split the prize but Donna is only the third woman to have ever won. Good for her!

    "...the Noble (sic) prize..."

    So will Donna Srickland become a countess or a duchess?

    A Duchess?
    She has a problem with white American men?

    The troll Chaney3 fails to grasp my joke about Sonhouse misspelling 'Nobel Prize' as 'Noble Prize'.
    A 'Noble Prize' for a woman traditionally meant marrying a nobleman and joining the aristocracy.

    Calm down. Just busting your chops, lol.

    You have jokes? Refreshing.
    Bring that side out more often. 😀

    "Female Nobel prize winner deemed not important enough for Wikipedia entry.
    Site moderator rejected submission for Donna Strickland, the first female physics
    winner in 55 years, in March."

    "Until around an hour and a half after the award was announced on Tuesday, the
    Canadian physicist Donna Strickland was not deemed significant enough to merit
    her own page on the user-edited encyclopedia.

    The oversight has once again highlighted the marginalization of women in science
    and gender bias at Wikipedia."

    More on sexism in physics.

    https://www.theguardian.com/science/2018/oct/05/bizarre-video-of-nobel-physics-laureate-gerard-mourou-surfaces

    "Bizarre video of Nobel physics laureate Gérard Mourou surfaces
    Mourou and a colleague shown dancing in a lab surrounded by female students,
    some of whom do a striptease"

    "Mourou and a colleague, Jean-Paul Chambaret, are seen dancing in the laser lab,
    apparently surrounded by a troupe of female students. Two of the women fling off
    their semi-transparent lab coats to reveal white underwear underneath, in an
    unexpected striptease. The men, wearing reflective laser googles, strike macho poses."

    "Jess Wade, a physicist at Imperial College London, said the four-minute clip
    managed to capture a lot of what is wrong with research, including hero-worship
    of professors, bizarre power relationships and sexism."

    I wonder which scene is worse, that one or Kavanaugh starting a bar fight....
