Is that Faulkner's nostril? Carter's ear?

Today, John L. Hall and Roy J. Glauber of the United States and Theodor W. Haensch of Germany received the Nobel Prize in physics, joining Barry J. Marshall and Robin Warren, who were awarded this year's Nobel Prize in medicine  yesterday. Other winners in chemistry, peace, economics, and literature will be announced early this month.
