Ig Nobel winners gathering in India

The APOGEE science festival, at BITS in Pilani, India has invited a collection of Ig Nobel Prize winners to come star in the festival on March 17 and 18. They have produced this nifty graphic, featuring the six Ig Nobellians who plan to take part:

The Ig Nobel winners themselves are excited to go—and are experiencing a different kind of excitement as each wrestles in possibly-friendly fashion with India’s government bureaucracy, which keeps tossing new, innovative paperwork hurdles (visa applications and ever-so-much-more) at them.
