Physics Nobel goes to Serge Haroche, David Wineland
BBC: This year’s Nobel prize in physics has been given to Serge Haroche of France and David Wineland of the US for their work with light and matter at the most fundamental level.
Haroche says he had been told he had won just 20 minutes before telling reporters, ‘I was lucky - I was in the street and passing near a bench, so I was able to sit down immediately.’

The feeling that most people have is this can’t be right, this can’t be real. … They are inviting the broader physics community to look at what they’ve done and really scrutinize it in great detail, and ideally for someone elsewhere in the world to repeat the measurements.
CERN spokesperson James Gillies • Talking about an oddball subatomic particle they’ve discovered that reportedly moves faster than the speed of light — which would break Albert Einstein’s theory of relativity (you know, E=MC²). Excuse us while we forget everything we knew about physics (which was probably limited to that equation).
