Nobel week continues with Physics prize

Who will get the call from Sweden telling them they've won the top scientific award in the field of physics?

The laureate or laureatues of the 2017 Nobel Prize in Physics will be announed about 11:45 today.

The 2016 prize was shared by a trio of scientists for their work on exotic states of matter, which was explained by a committee member with the help of Swedish pastry.

110 Nobel Prizes in Physics have been awarded between since 1901, of which only 47 of them have been given to one laureate only. So far, only 2 women have been awarded the physics prize.
