It's great to be back on The Voice.
The Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine has been awarded to a pair of scientists who developed the technology that led to the mRNA Covid vaccines. Professors Katalin Kariko and Drew Weissman will share the prize. The technology was experimental before the pandemic, but has now been given to millions of people around the world to protect them against serious Covid-19. The same mRNA technology is now being researched for other diseases, including cancer.
This year's Nobel Prize in Physics rewards experiments with light that capture "the shortest of moments" and opened a window on the world of electrons. The award goes to Pierre Agostini, Ferenc Krausz and Anne L'Huillier. Their work demonstrated a way to create extremely short pulses of light that can be used to capture and study rapid processes inside atoms.
I just watched Stephen Colbert. To catch up on the humor we missed - he did a double monologue highlighting events as far back as June.
Favorite joke: On the matter of prosecutors accusing Robert Menendez, the top-ranking Democrat on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, of taking bribes in exchange for helping protect Egypt's access to billions in U.S. - Colbert said it was a .... "Pyramid Scheme."
Colbert's guest was Neil DeGrasse Tyson who spoke about the uses and benefits of artificial intelligence - and also UFOs and extraterrestrials featuring that pic of the alleged mummified alien recently in the news. I didn't get the feeling he believed it was real, but he keeps an open mind and is very careful with his choice of words even though most of the time he's overly animated and distracting - or maybe that's how scientists, like magicians, spin a tale and get us wondering.
Scientists at the European Space Agency (ESA) have used NASA's James Webb Space Telescope to make an astonishing discovery: free-floating objects the size of Jupiter, the largest planet in our solar system, in the Orion Nebula, the nearest star-forming region to Earth
