SIAL Announces Roger Penrose as 2011 Recipient of its The Most Wonderful Person on Earth Award
ROCKY HILL, NJ (SIAL) - The Somerset Institute for Advanced Logic is pleased to announce that Sir Dr. Roger Penrose of the United Kingdom has won the second annual SIAL Most Wonderful Person on Earth Award, joining last year's and first-ever recipient, Edward Witten.
Here at SIAL, we love Math and Physics and Computer Science and their 3-way interdisciplinarian nature, which means we use big boys'n'girls words like "duality" and "symmetry" and geeky ones like "restore balance to 'the Force'".
In awarding Penrose, who really IS wonderful (in spite of our skepticism of his CCC model), we believe we have achieved this.
After all, Dr. Witten is really a Mathematician who thinks he's still a Physicist, and Dr. Penrose is a Mathematician who thinks he's a Physicist.
(You may have to read that again, we did too, and we wrote it! But it does make sense. Technically. Note to ourselves: Must. Hire. Copy Editor.)
What's not to love?
We will be expanding this post later tonight, but today we must go and you know, actually get stuff done. Dang responsibilities!
Love you all, have a nice day and weekend. Friday rocks. :-)
