Improbable Research has announced two dates on its 2008 Ig Nobel UK tour- 11 March at Imperial College London and 12 March at the Guardian Visitor Centre. I would imagine that more dates will be announced shortly.
The shows will feature Marc Abrahams, If Nobel Prize organiser and editor of the Annals of Improbable Research. There will be the performance of a mini-opera, and also The How-to-Give-a-Bad-Science-Lecture Contest. Speakers include Kees Moeliker, who won the 2003 Ig Nobel Biology Prize for documenting the first scientifically recorded case of homosexual necrophilia in the mallard duck, and Chris McManus who wrote the study “Scrotal Asymmetry in Man and in Ancient Sculpture,” for which he received the 2002 Ig Nobel Medicine Prize.
Tickets will be free but limited to two per applicant. How could anyone with an interest in science pass up on this opportunity?
