• NOTABLE scientists and peacemakers may get the recognition they deserve this week. Sweden's Nobel Foundation dishes out its annual prizes for medicine on Monday October 8th. The next day the winner of the prize for physics is announced and on Wednesday a leading chemist will be honoured. The biggest headlines are usually reserved for the peace prize, which is announced on Friday. Jealous scientists should look to the example of Linus Pauling, who took the chemistry prize in 1954 and the peace prize in 1962, for his efforts to promote a nuclear test-ban treaty.
