American Physical Society gives a prize to a fraudster

The American Physical Society has given a prize to fraudolent string research. Peter Woit has the story here. The recipient claimed a prediction (on the Higgs mass) that was, in fact, a retrodiction.

On top of the fraud, there is still a good chance that he is wrong: it might well be that the Higgs does not exist at all...

Men without caring women are often lost creatures.
