Hearty congrats to UC Berkeley Professor George F. Smoot for winning this year's Nobel Prize in Physics (along with some other dude). Professor Smoot will be enjoying a nice chunk of change from the Nobel Foundation, and will be entitled to park in the specially designated Nobel Laureate parking spaces on campus.*
With a name like "Smoot," he has to be good.
* Seriously. Next time you're on the Berkeley campus look for spaces marked "NL." Those are reserved for Nobel Laureates.
EDIT: Link now points to UC Berkeley news story.
