Tickets are now available for the seventh first annual Ig Nobel Prize
Ceremony, to be held the evening of Thursday, October 9 at Harvard's Sanders
Theatre.  This nationally-broadcast evening of scientific silliness always
sells out, so you should buy now; tickets can be bought at the Sanders
Theatre box office (496-2222) in person or by phone.  Groups of 4 to 12 have
the option of applying to attend as official delegations; for more
information on Ig Nobel delegations, see .

For those who are unable to get tickets, "The Ig" will be broadcast in a
variety of formats; in addition to the usual hour's worth of highlights
broadcast on the NPR program "Talk of the Nation: Science Friday" at
Thanksgiving time, the show will be livecast on the M-bone, C U See Me, and
(maybe) RealVideo as well.  If you want to set up a viewing party, there'll
soon be info on how to set this up; contact Andrew Pimlott
( if you want to receive details when they
become available.

Other information on the 1997 Ig Nobel Prizes can be found at the home page
of the Annals of Improbable Research (, the principal
sponsor of the Ig.

Please forward this information to any individuals or groups that you think
would be interested.  And, if the group is a really large one, please send
me e-mail about it, so that the Ig organizers can post an announcement
directly to that group in future years.
