Seems I’m on a Nobel Prize theme ‘day’. This story reminds me of the case of Rosalind Franklin – a great scientist who also inconveniently died before an award. I am so pleased that the awarding body reviewed its rules and regulations and did not refuse to make an award on the basis that the person is dead (especially as this happened close to the award). Any scientist working on science that is worthy of the award, who is perhaps part of a team of scientists should get due recognition for their role. Pity we cannot gain the recognition that Franklin deserved.
