Byterapers is one of the academic groups, too, with Dr. Dick and Professor Fate.

Accoding to what I've been able to find, Niklas wasn't awarded a Nobel Prize in Physics. However, he and a fellow researcher at CERN, were awarded "The New Horizons for Physics Prize" which is "awarded to promising junior researchers".

Wikipedia Explanation

Still an awesome achievement, though :)

Ah - just saw, that only Baah mentioned a Nobel Prize. Sorry ;)

Congratulation to Niklas.

While I am not so into quantum field theory there might still be a Würfel Mode hidden somewhere. ;-)

Plenty of academic cred in the (ex-)scene.. For example, the Department of Information and Computer Science at Aalto University's School of Science sports Cable/Complex and Slayer/Scoopex as professor and docent, respectively.

(I'll make sure to add Dr to my handle once this PhD thing finally gets done, hopefully within a year or so.)

He should get a nobel prize for that starfield
In Norway they pay a phd graduate less than a toilet cleaner. Papers are made for wiping shit.

My school is old school

in scene poetry?
There is an interview with Niklas Beisert (pascal of cubic team) conducted when he was 19 years old. You can find it in Shine #1 (works fine with DOSBox, just use default configuration with svga_s3).

Congratz Prof Dr Niklas / Pascal !

And I gotta say, if he ever reads this, that Cubic Team/$een demos were among the first I watched, those that hooked me into this scene :), doing' these crazy demonstrations :)

The only thing I have to say: Sceners are legit.
