3 Researchers share Nobel Prize in Chemistry

Two Americans and a German scientist won the Nobel Prize in chemistry on Wednesday for contributing to the development of super-resolution microscopy. The chemistry prize was awarded to US researchers Eric Betzig, William Moerner and German scientist Stefan Hell. 

Their contribution will allow the scientists to see tiny features of cells and molecules that lie outside the physical limits of regular light microscopes.

The Nobel Prize in Physics for 2014 has gone to three scientists: Isamu Akasaki, Hiroshi Amano and Shuji Nakamura. All three of the scientists are from Japan. The trio has been credited for their creation of blue light-emitting diode (LED).

They have been awarded the Nobel Prize considering the fact that the magnitude of their achievement is self-evident. Their discovery is of a new kind of light that has the potential to enable bright and energy-saving white light sources.

The most important discovery in particle physics has been made by the Geneva research center in half a century. It explains how the visible universe holds together and is tapping rising nations to help fund its follow-up act.

They called the particle as "God particle" because it holds the key to the presence of humanity on Earth.
