Physics World talks to Spanish TV about migrating Nobel laureates


By Hamish Johnston

A few weeks ago I was in Germany for the 66th Lindau Nobel Laureate Meeting, where I moderated a “press talk” about migration and science. This was essentially a panel discussion that involved two chemistry Nobel laureates – Martin Karplus and Daniel Shechtman – and two early-career physicists: Winifred Ayinpogbilla Atiah from Ghana and Ana Isabel Maldonado Cid from Spain.

After the talk I did an interview with Graziella Almendral of Spain’s Indagando TV, which makes videos about science and technology. I spoke about the infographics that Physics World published last October which show that about 25% of physics Nobel laureates were or are immigrants.

And because the interview was done just three days after the British public voted to leave the European Union, I also speculated about the possible effects of Brexit on physics in the UK.

Now, Almendral has released a short video of the interview and you can watch it above.

    Good, if 25 % of the Nobel Lauriates are migrants, then, what is the proportion of physicists who are migrants? I mean including you!
