Israeli scientist Daniel Shechtman has made headlines at home for winning the 2011 Nobel Prize in chemistry, but he is not the only Jewish recipient, with members of the tribe making a strong showing this year in both medicine and physics.
Saul Pelmutter and Adam G. Ross, both American Jews, are two of the three Nobel Prize in physics winners, recognized “for the discovery of the accelerating expansion of the Universe through observations of distant supernovae.”
So far, five of the seven Nobel Prize winners this year are Jewish; their Yiddeshe mamas must be so proud.
