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:
This morning, everyone @MPI_EVA_Leipzig Join us for our very own welcome and congratulations #Nobel Prize laureate, Svante Pääbo, one of the founding directors of our institute and lucid mind! We are absolutely ecstatic and excited! 😊🥳🥰 @maxplanckpress @Nobel Prize pic.twitter.com/gi3PifPUl2

Paabo’s colleagues did not stop there. I also threw into the Max Planck Institute pond for good measure.
What better way to celebrate #Nobel Prize Better than being grabbed by your co-worker and thrown into your Institute pond? 😂 #MedicineNobelPrize Winner Svante Pääbo’s @MPI_EVA_LeipzigTraditionally celebrated scientific success with a quick *volunteer* bath! 😉🌊@maxplanckpress pic.twitter.com/IMnMgPsexx

Chemistry laureate Carolyn Bertozzi – recognized alongside Barry Sharpless and Morten Meldal for her work on “click chemistry,” processes that mimic nature for rapidly creating desirable substances and trustworthy – shared a little more fairly, shoot some effervescent and drop a gauze from the bottle.

It suits someone who has been a rock star in more fields than science. She has Twitter greetings from former college band member Tom Morellowho became one of rock music’s greatest guitarists in Rage Against the Machine.

No word yet on what the winners ofHe won the Nobel Prize in Physics achieved, but here’s the hope that quantum information experts Alain Aspect, John F. Clauser and Anton Zeilinger will each receive a free ticket to hit the particle accelerator of their choice.
