No­bel Peace Prize

Mem­bers of the royal fam­ily of Swe­den—along with 1,300-some guests—honor No­bel lau­re­ates at Stock­holm City Hall on De­cem­ber 10. The prizes have come un­der fire in re­cent years for a lack of fe­male hon­orees, but this year marked the first time fe­male sci­en­tists won in both chem­istry and physics. Canada’s Donna Strick­land was feted for her work on high-in­ten­sity laser pulses, and Amer­i­can Frances Arnold for her work on en­zymes.
