Nambu, Kobayashi and Maskawa

The Nobel Prize in physics has been awarded to Youchiro Nambu, Makoto Kobayashi and Toshihide Maskawa. Nambu fomulated a mathematical description of spontaneous broken symnetry. Kobayashi and Maskawa explained broken symnetry in terms of the standard model, but required that the model be extended to three families of quarks. The new quarks were predicted in 1972, but were confirmed only in recent years. In 2001 both BABAR and BELLE experiments detected broken symnetries exactly as predicted by Kobayashi and Maskawa. As with a changing speed of light, the most far-reaching predictions take a long time to be proved.

Dr. Jerome Corsi was detained by immigration authorities in Kenya. After doing research there, Corsi was on his way to a press conference. Is Kenya threatened by illegal immigrants from the US? Corsi broke now laws, committed no crime other than finding something the authorities didn't like. In today's security regime, researchers and scientists come under particular scrutiny. The Nobel Prize shows that science is an international effort. The world is rapidly becoming dangerous for researchers.
