What do you do when you (or a colleague) win a Nobel Prize for your scientific research? Party!

As the awards were presented this week, the winners were greeted by cheering crowds at their research institutions.

This is Svante Paabo, this year’s honoree in physiology or medicine for genetic research into human evolution, showing up to work the next day and was greeted by a cheering crowd:

Paabo’s colleagues did not stop there. I also threw into the Max Planck Institute pond for good measure.
