The same thing, translated into French:

This was the second of three officially Improbable parts of TEDx CERN. the first was the song “Some Galaxies”.

    In this talk, Marc Abrahams, the editor of the Improbable Research, refers “Harvard University” several times.
    I wonder if/how Harvard University is involved in the Improbale Research/IG Nobel except that the annual ceremony is held at Harvard Sanders Theatre??? For example, is Harvard University involved in the nomination process of IG Nobel Prize winners? I am asking this because some of the winners claim as if Harvard University authorized the prize.
