2012 Physics Nobel Prizes

This one certainly came out of nowhere.

The 2012 Nobel Prize for Physics has been awarded to Serge Haroche and David Wineland.

The Nobel citation said the award was for "ground-breaking experimental methods that enable measuring and manipulation of individual quantum systems".
... which is rather vague!

The Nobel website does have a more in-depth description of it for the laymen.

Still waiting for a woman to win the Physics Nobel Prize in my lifetime.
