Live broadcast of The Ig Nobel Awards

The Ig Nobel Awards bestow honors on scientific research that is simultaneously silly-sounding, and utterly fascinating. This year's awards will be presented tonight, in Boston, and the show is sold out. But you can watch the whole thing here on BoingBoing.

The program will start at 7:05 Eastern/4:05 Pacific, and the actual awards ceremony will begin a half-hour later. And don't worry if you can't just stop and watch while it's live. After the ceremony ends, the YouTube video will automatically convert from a live broadcast to a recorder, so you can watch it at your leisure.
