The Harvard has awarded authors of the best scientific research of the world who at first force to laugh, and then — to think On an award ceremony. Photo: Brian Snyder/Reuters In Harvard was handed by Shnobelevsky awards — the main awards for silly scientific research. Each winner has received 10 trillion dollars — the truth, Zimbabwean which have withdrawn from circulation nine years ago — and the cardboard heart which is unevenly cut in half of which wires stuck out. Human saliva — the most effective cleaner. Chemists from Portugal have compared her abilities to an uyat-spiritist and sal ammoniac. Their colleagues biologists have proved that the female of a fly of a drosophila who has visited a glass of wine can spoil drink. She develops a special pheromone which strengthens his smell. I have won against a way to diagnose male impotence by means of stamps the Reproductive Medicine nomination, the editor-in-chief of the popular scientific Attic portal Egor Bykovsky tells: Egor Bykovsky the editor-in-chief of the popular scientific Attic portal "Actually work is devoted to rather important problem — distinction of psychogenic and organic impotence. One of ways to distinguish them in general quite simple — to check whether the man has an erection during a night dream. The scientist has suggested to stick together a ring from stamps and to put on it genital body. Since morning it is only necessary to look whether it was broken off a ring. It is ridiculous, but is very practical — approximately the same as to take in space instead of expensive ball pen a pencil. For me James Cole's work from the University of Brighton about harm of cannibalism was the most amusing. It has turned out that consumption of calories at cannibalism is much lower, than from the majority of other traditional meat diets". At the end of a ceremony the leader has traditionally told: "If this year you haven't won the Ig Nobel Prize — and especially if you have won it! — I wish that next year you were lucky more". It is a hint on the real Nobel Prize. Cases when the person at first received Shnobelya, and then Nobel, are, the editor-in-chief of popular scientific online edition N 1 Andrey Konyaev: says — there Is one known example — Andrey Geym, one of inventors of a decanter. He has got the Ig Nobel Prize for the fact that he studied a levitation of frogs. He placed a frog in strong magnetic field, the frog directly was groundless. The main idea was to check how strong magnetic fields influence activity of an organism. Also it has turned out that don't influence in any way. — Whether there were stories when such amusing things developed into very serious researches? — All of them are very serious. It is very important to understand it: in them there is some nuance which has just drawn attention. All of them are published in good magazines. Always scientific progress is small short steps, and it quite to itself substantial short steps, it is simple to eat ridiculous nuances there. Presidents — for example, the Belarusian leader Alexander Lukashenko in the World Award nomination became Shnobelevki's winners even. Seven years ago he has forbidden to clap in public places. Togas
