The 2012 Nobel Peace Prize has been awarded to the European Union (EU). Norwegian Nobel Committee says that The union and its forerunners have for over six decades contributed to the advancement of peace
and reconciliation, democracy and human rights in Europe.

Read below the official press release about the 2012 Nobel Peace Prize.

The Norwegian Nobel Committee has decided that the Nobel Peace Prize for 2012 is to be awarded to the European Union (EU). The union
and its forerunners have for over six decades contributed to the advancement of peace and reconciliation, democracy and human rights in
Europe.

In the inter-war years, the Norwegian Nobel Committee made several awards to persons who were seeking reconciliation between Germany
and France. Since 1945, that reconciliation has become a reality. The dreadful suffering in World War II demonstrated the need for a new
Europe. Over a seventy-year period, Germany and France had fought three wars. Today war between Germany and France is unthinkable.
This shows how, through well-aimed efforts and by building up mutual confidence, historical enemies can become close partners.

The Nobel Peace Prize is one of the five Nobel Prizes created by the Swedish industrialist and inventor Alfred Nobel. It is a highly regarded
award, recognized internationally.

Nobel Peace prize for 3 women |QualityPoint Technologies | Nobel Prize | Scoop.it

Nobel peace prize 2011 is handed jointly to three women. The Nobel Peace Prize has been awarded to Liberian President Ellen
Johnson-Sirleaf, her compatriot Leymah Gbowee, and Yemeni women's rights activist Tawakkul Karman.

The award was intended as a strong signal in favour of the empowerment of women in the developing world.

The Norwegian committee said it had honoured the three women "for their non-violent struggle for the safety of women and for women's
rights to full participation in peace-building work". It was the first time a woman had been given the prize in seven years.

"The Nobel Prize in Physics 2012 was awarded jointly to Serge Haroche and David J. Wineland"


Nobel Prize in Physics 2012 was awarded jointly to Serge Harocheand David J. Wineland"for ground-breaking experimental methods that enable measuring and manipulation of individual quantum systems"

Serge Haroche and David J. Wineland have independently invented and developed methods for measuring and manipulating individual particles while preserving their quantum-mechanical nature, in ways that were previously thought unattainable.

Serge Haroche, French citizen. Born 1944 in Casablanca, Morocco. Ph.D. 1971 from Université Pierre et Marie Curie, Paris, France. Professor at Collège de France and Ecole Normale Supérieure, Paris, France.

David J. Wineland, U.S. citizen. Born 1944 in Milwaukee, WI, USA. Ph.D. 1970 from Harvard University, Cambridge, MA, USA. Group Leader and NIST Fellow at National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and University of Colorado Boulder, CO, USA

What is Quantum Computer?

A possible application of "ion traps" that many scientists dream of is the quantum computer. In present-day classical computers the smallest unit of information is a bit that takes the value of either 1 or 0. In a quantum computer, however, the basic unit of information – a quantum bit or qubit – can be 1 and 0 at the same time. Two quantum bits can simultaneously take on four values – 00, 01, 10 and 11 – and each additional qubit doubles the amount of possible states. For n quantum bits there are 2n possible states, and a quantum computer of only 300 qubits could hold 2300 values simultaneously, more @ http://qualitypoint.blogspot.in/2012/10/the-nobel-prize-in-physics-2012-was.html
