The beginning of October means Nobel Prize time, when committees in
Stockholm and Oslo announce the winners of what many consider the most
prestigious awards in the world.
This year's Nobel season kicks off Monday with the medicine award being announced for the 106th time.
Daily announcements will follow during the week with physics Tuesday, chemistry Wednesday and probably, though the date has not been confirmed, literature on Thursday. The 2015 Nobel Peace Prize will be announced on Friday and, finally, the economics award on Oct. 12.
