Dear SIT Members, 
Recently, I told somebody that I am one of the many Italians who moved to Denmark just to complain about its weather. The real reason is that I was excited about the idea of starting my PhD in radiation biology at DTU Risø Campus.
The campus was established in 1955 to investigate the peaceful use of nuclear energy, and the Atomic Energy Commission led its construction with Niels Bohr as chairperson. The history of the place ignited my curiosity about its founder, and I am now asking you: how many Nobel Prizes did Niels Bohr win?
In 1922, the Nobel Prize in Physics was awarded to Niels Bohr "for his services in the investigation of the structure of atoms and of the radiation emanating from them". However, about 50 years later, another Nobel Prize was assigned to Niels Bohr. This time the winner was Aage Niels Bohr, the son of Margrethe and Niels. Aage, Ben Roy Mottelson and Leo James Rainwater won the prestigious prize "for the discovery of the connection between collective motion and particle motion in atomic nuclei and the development of the theory of the structure of the atomic nucleus based on this connection".
Here comes another curious fact about Niels (the father) and the Danish brewing company Carlsberg, which is very active in producing beer and funding research projects. Apparently, after the scientist won the Nobel, Carlsberg donated him a house with a direct pipeline to the brewery, so that Niels had free beer on tap for the rest of his life.
Dear SIT members, the lesson to be learnt here is not to be discouraged when the job becomes hard, because one day you could also win a house with free beer (and a Nobel Prize)!
And remember to register for the annual Radiation Research Society conference.
