Answer:
Andre Geim who won an Ig Noble prize in 2010 for his research involving levitating frogs, won the 2010 Nobel prize for physics. How awesome is that?

  1. 2010 Physics Nobel, 2000 Ignobel for the levitating frog.


  2. Vivek

    Andre Geim. Nobel Prize for Physics for discovery of mechanism to separate Graphene from Graphite. The flying frog is an experiment on magnetic levitation. He was awarded Ig Nobel for that experiment.


  3. Ignobel – Nobel.


  4. ElatedSipun010

    Andre Geim – Nobel prize 2010 winner in Physics…Hi won Ig Nobel prize 10 years earlier in 2000.

    (1) Andre Geim

    (2) Maglev frog

    (1) did a Sandra Bullock by winning both the Ig Nobel and “the Nobel” Prize…

    For (2) he won the Ig Nobel

    and for groundbreaking experiments regarding the two-dimensional material graphene alongside Konstantin Novoselov he won the Nobel Prize

    Andre Geim won 2000 Ig Nobel Prize in physics with Sir Michael Berry of Bristol University, for an experiment in which a live frog was magnetically levitated.

    And in 2010, he is awarded 2010 Nobel Prize in Physics, jointly with Konstantin Novoselov, “for groundbreaking experiments regarding the two-dimensional material graphene”

    Andre Geim becomes the first person to win both an IgNobel Prize (2000 – Diamagnetic levitation) and a Nobel Prize (2010 – Discovery of graphene).

    Super question.
    The first man to win both the Ignobel and the Nobel award.

    Professor Andre Geim , first, the awesome ignobel prize for a levitating frog in a magnetic field, and now the meh Nobel prize for properties of Graphene.

    Andre Geim – first person to win both the Nobel and the Ig Nobel. The Nobel for some trivial stuff and the Ig Nobel for the undeniably awesome frog levitation.


  20. Vardhan Shenoy

    Andre Geim. In 2000, he won the Ig Nobel Prize (a parody of Nobel) for levitating a live a frog magnetically.
    On Oct 05, 2010 he won the actual Nobel Prize (Physics) for groundbreaking experiments regarding the two-dimensional material graphene.

    Andre Geim was awarded the 2000 Ig Nobel Prize in Physics for an experiment in which a live frog was magnetically levitated.
    Geim later shared the 2010 Nobel Prize in Physics for his research on graphene, the first time anyone has been awarded both the Ig Nobel and Nobel Prizes.


  31. kallukudian

    A live frog is magnetically levitated, an experiment that earned André Geim from the University of Nijmegen and Sir Michael Berry from University of Bristol the 2000 Ig Nobel Prize in physics. And the Nobel Prize in Physics in 2010.
