That Nobel disaster phenomenon could be more of an artifact of this proposed dropoff in productivity with age than anything having to do with the actual act of receiving the Nobel, or burning out after a great contribution. After all, it took Einstein 16 years to receive a Nobel Prize for his work on the photoelectric effect, and in the meantime all he did was give us general relativity. :biggrin:
