The 2021 Ig Nobel Prize Ceremony webcast

The 31st First Annual Ig® Nobel Prize ceremony happens Thursday, September 9, 2021, at 6 pm (US eastern time). Watch it right here. Alternatively, watch the Japanese webstream.

[VIDEO NOTE, added September 12, 2021: YouTube’s notorious takedown algorithms sometimes block the ceremony recording that lives there. We have so far been unable to find a human at YouTube who can fix that. We recommend that you watch the identical recording on Vimeo.]

Ten new Ig Nobel prizes will be awarded for things that make people LAUGH, then THINK. The ceremony web page has plentiful background details.
