Watch the Ig Nobel Awards, live

The Ig Nobel Awards honor scientific research that is simultaneously silly-sounding and thought provoking. This years' awards ceremony, in Boston, is sold out. But you can watch the whole thing here, starting right ... about ... now (7:30 Eastern).

If you miss the show, never fear. The YouTube video embedded here will automatically switch from live broadcast to recording after the ceremony ends, and you can then watch it at your leisure.
