More congratulations

This time to the Russian scientists, Alexei A. Abrikosov (who has been working in the US since 1991) and Vitaly L. Ginzburg, and their British-American colleague, Anthony J. Leggett, on the Nobel prize in physics. As I understand, they are given credit for their work done in the 1950s. Ginzburg must be one the oldest laureates: he was born in 1916. Compare this to Rudolf Moessbauer’s getting the Nobel at 32, in 1961, also for his 1950s achievements (the Moessbauer effect).
