Nobel prize winners

today at noon I was in the same room with two Nobel Prize winners here in Helsinki, Finland.
Dr Richard J. Roberts, who won the Nobel Prize in Medicine 1993 for his discovery of split genes, and the winner of the 2000 Nobel Chemistry Prize, Dr Alan J. Heeger. He has done pioneering research in the area of semi-conducting and metallic polymers.

Well, they were nice fellas. I especially liked Dr Heeger's argument that science needs to be more and more interdisciplinary.
They made some brief introductions and we got the opportunity to ask some questions.
