Great to see this year that a joint UK/Canada team won the ‘Ig Nobel Award for Probability’
The award citation reads: “for making two related discoveries: First, that the longer a cow has been lying down, the more likely that cow will soon stand up; and Second, that once a cow stands up, you cannot easily predict how soon that cow will lie down again.”
I think you’ll agree that this fascinating piece of research shows the simple effectiveness of international collaboration.

I was particularly impressed by the Engineering Safety Award. The skies are now so much safer!
