Discovery of the Neutron
James Chadwick’s discovery of the neutron, for which he was awarded the 1935 #NobelPrize in Physics, was reported in two papers. The first “Possible Existence of a neutron” was published in the February 27 edition of @ Nature in 1932.
Chadwick’s discovery helps clear the way for splitting the nuclei of even the heaviest atomic elements, making possible the development of the atomic bomb.

Words discovery and found are synonyms. In this situation it sounds technically better to state discovered,cause at that time the subject and minute substance in question was unknown to,the vast majority! Please look up facts before making yourself look stupid in front of the entire world.

Poet Pablo Neruda to be Reburied
For nearly two years, Neruda’s remains have been lying in forensic laboratories in three countries – and from early this year in a fourth – in an attempt to determine whether his death may have been accelerated by poisoning. Read more at the guardian http://goo.gl/Nx4Qi7

Pablo Neruda is the pen-name of Neftalí Ricardo Reyes Bas. He adopted the name in 1920 in memory of the Czechoslovak poet Jan Neruda (1834-1891). Neruda was awarded the 1971 #NobelPrize in Literature "for a poetry that with the action of an elemental force brings alive a continent's destiny and dreams". You can read his short poem ”Youth” at Nobelprize.org: http://goo.gl/4TFMGh
The Chilean poet’s remains had been examined in forensic labs in four different countries after Chilean government reopened murder investigation

The supernova SN 1987A exploded on 23 February 1987
A supernova is a star that has reached the end of its life and exploded. Supernovae are common in the universe, but rare in our neighborhood. In a nearby galaxy, a supernova became visible from the earth on 23 February 1987. In the space of a few seconds, the gravitational energy was converted to neutrinos that were emitted in a gigantic burst. Of the approximately ten million billion (10,000,000,000,000,000) neutrinos that reached Masatoshi Koshiba's water tank his research group detected  12, confirming theories of supernovae.

Neutrino means "small neutral one" in Italian.

Koshiba was awarded the 2002 #NobelPrize in Physics for detecting cosmic neutrinos, the most elusive particles in the universe. He shared the prize with Raymond Davis Jr and Riccardo Giacconi.

198 people nominated for the 2015 Nobel Prize in Literature!
Today, Peter Englund, Permanent Secretary of the Swedish Academy, announces that the long list of nominees for the 2015 Nobel Prize in Literature now is complete. Further he writes that it should be noted that the numbers are rather normal - and with the procedure so well-established it would be strange if the number of nominees suddenly halved or doubled or demonstrated some other interesting deviation. The Swedish Academy received 259 proposals this year, which resulted in 198 people nominated. Of these, 36 are first time nominees. One of these 198 will become this year's Nobel Laureate.

Now the hard work begins. Namely, to create a list of 20-25 nominees out of these 198, with the further goal of creating a short list of five names by the end of May.

Peter Englund points out that it is irritating when nominators reveal to the public whom they have nominated. He suspects that sometimes the reason for this is to be able to say that a certain author is “Nobel Prize nominated." This goes against the rules and Englund says they have the ability to invalidate nominations made public. Englund says it’s possible that this will happen with one or another nomination in the future.
He ends his blog post with "There must be some order to the process."

The 2015 Nobel Prizes will be announced in October.

Nobel Laureates under Arrest at the Time of the Award
3 Nobel Laureates were under arrest at the time of the award of the #NobelPrize, all of them Nobel Peace Prize Laureates:
* German pacifist and journalist Carl von Ossietzky, awarded 1935
* Burmese politician Aung San Suu Kyi, awarded 1991
* Chinese human rights activist Liu Xiaobo, awarded 2010

Ossietzky was arrested 27 February 1933 and later kept in a concentration camp as a political prisoner. The international campaign for Ossietzky made him a symbol of democratic resistance against Hitler. Read more about Ossietzky here: http://goo.gl/8oJp56

CAT Scan of 1,000-Year-Old Chinese Buddha Statue Reveals Mummified Monk Hidden Inside

The Drents Museum says it suspects this mummy could be a case of self-mummification. That was a practice by Buddhist monks in Asia that involved a strict diet, including poison, to the point of near starvation in order to promote preservation of the body. When they were near death, they were buried alive.

The 1979 #NobelPrize in Physiology or Medicine was awarded to Allan Cormack and Godfrey Hounsfield for the "development of computer assisted tomography", also known as CAT or CT scan. CAT scan is a specialized X-ray test that can give good images of soft tissues of the body which do not show on ordinary X-ray pictures.

Do you know what the peace symbol represents?
On this day, 21 February 1958, the peace symbol design was completed. It was commissioned by the British Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament. The three lines inside the circle represent the simplified semaphore letters "N" and "D", for Nuclear Disarmament.

Semaphore is the system of using flags to send information great distances, such as from one ship to another ship. "N" is formed by a person holding a flag in each hand and pointing it toward the ground at a 45-degree angle. "D" is formed by a person holding one flag straight down and one straight up.

Mechanism for Controlling the Flow of Genetic Information.
In their article in Nature, 19 February 1998, Andrew Fire and Craig Mello drew a series of conclusions from their simple but elegant experiments with C. elegans genes. C.elegans - Caenorhabditis elegans – is a transparent nematode (roundworm), about 1 mm in length). Their discovery clarified many confusing and contradictory experimental observations and revealed a natural mechanism for controlling the flow of genetic information. This heralded the start of a new research field.

Fire and Mello were awarded the 2006 #NobelPrize in Physiology or Medicine for their discovery of "RNA interference – gene silencing by double-stranded RNA".

From Imre Kertész’s Nobel Lecture:
”And yet something very special happened while I was preparing this lecture, which in a way reassured me. One day I received a large brown envelope in the mail. It was sent to me by Doctor Volkhard Knigge, the director of the Buchenwald Memorial Center. He enclosed a small envelope with his congratulatory note, and described what was in the envelope, so, in case I didn't have the strength to look, I wouldn't have to. The envelope contained a copy of the original daily report on the camp's prisoners for February 18, 1945. In the "Abgänge", that is, the "Decrement" column, I learned about the death of Prisoner #64,921 - Imre Kertész, factory worker, born in 1927. The two false data: the year of my birth and my occupation were entered in the official registry when I was brought to Buchenwald. I had made myself two years older so I wouldn't be classified as a child, and had said worker rather than student to appear more useful to them.”
