"Microscope work wins Nobel Prize in Chemistry"

From the BBC:

The 2014 Nobel Prize in Chemistry has been awarded to a trio of researchers for improving the resolution of optical microscopes.

Eric Betzig, Stefan Hell and William Moerner used fluorescence to extend the limits of the light microscope.

The winners were handed a very, very small cheque.

B, good point. Or indeed engineering.
