No Nobel for GR
Today there's a really interesting article in the Guardian (newspaper) which is about why Einstein never won a Nobel Prize for General (or special) Relativity. http://www.guardian.co.uk/science/across-the-universe/2012/oct/08/einstein-nobel-prize-relativity?CMP=twt_fd
I deals with the political climate surrounding the prize then, and brings up factors that I was previously unaware of, such as the rising climate of anti-semitism. A good short read!
