Physics at the Library: The 2017 Nobel Prize in Physics - same procedure as last year

Mats Larsson from The Nobel Committee for Physics will briefly describe the procedure and criteria to award the Nobel Prize in physics. He will then describe the 2017 year's prize – the LIGO detector and gravitational waves. 

 Mats Larsson from The Nobel Committee for Physics will briefly describe the procedure and criteria to award the Nobel Prize in physics, and exemplify with a few previous physics prizes. He will then describe the 2017 year's prize in physics – the LIGO detector and gravitational waves.

This was one of very few occasions when it was possible to award an achievement that met Nobel's wish about "under det förlupne året" ("during the preceding year"). The discovery of gravitational waves was published in 2016 and awarded in 2017.

The event is streamed live

Christmassy drink will be served from 2 PM
