Submission + - "Dance Your Ph.D." Winner Announced (

sciencehabit writes: Science Magazine has crowned the winner of its annual "Dance Your Ph.D." contest. Scientists from around the globe are invited to submit videos of themselves interpreting their graduate thesises in dance form. The results are often hilarious--and highly entertaining--and this year is no exception. This year's winner is Peter Liddicoat, a materials scientist at the University of Sydney in Australia, whose "Evolution of nanostructural architecture in 7000 series aluminium alloys during strengthening by age-hardening and severe plastic deformation" is interpreted as a performance that employs juggling, clowning, and a big dance number—representing the crystal lattices that he studies with atomic microscopy.
