SciShow Explains the Science Behind the 2014 Nobel Prize Winners in Physics, Chemistry, and Medicine

SciShow host Hank Green explains the science behind the 2014 Nobel Prize winners in the fields of physics, chemistry, and medicine in a recent episode. The physics prize this year went to a team that developed a blue light-emitting diode (LED), which made possible the white LEDs found in smartphones and LED bulbs. The chemistry prize was awarded to a team that worked on a new fluorescent microscopy technique, and the medicine prize was won by scientists who discovered that the brain has its own internal GPS.
