The Nobel Prize is the highest award in science. Its recipients include nearly every member of the pantheon of secular gods we revere--from Albert Einstein to Marie Curie, along with more recent notables such as James Watson and Francis Crick.

Every December, the current year's crop of new science Laureates travel to Stockholm to receive their Prizes. While they are there, Nobelprize.org, the official website of the Nobel Foundation, interviews them for the archives. This year, Nobelprize.org is offering visitors to Scientific American.com the chance to pose questions to the Laureates. Read about this years' Laureates here.
