LIVE STREAM: Watch Nobel Prize in Physics Announcement Online

The Nobel Prize in Physics is scheduled to be announced early Tuesday, October 4, and you can watch it right here online, in the YouTube video above. According to the Nobel Foundation, the earliest that the prize will be announced will be at 11:45 a.m. local time in Sweden. This translates to approximately 5:45 a.m. Eastern. However, the prize might not be announced at this exact time, so keep an eye on the live stream for details and updates.

According to Thomson Reuters, the winners of the Nobel Prize for Physics might be Marvin L. Cohen, for theoretical studies predicting solid materials’ properties. Or Ronald W.P. Drever, Kip S. Thorne, and Rainer Weiss for developing the observatory that made the detection of gravitational waves possible. (You can read more about the discovery in our story here.) Or it could be Celso Grebogi, Edward Ott, and James A. Yorke for their description of the OGY method, a control theory of chaotic systems.
