Can a cat be solid and liquid at the same time? How does a fetus respond to music in the mothers vagina? and How does the ability to lie change within a lifespan? The Ig Nobel Prizes are awarded every year for ten achievements that "first make people laugh, and then make them think". Meet three of the laureates. Watch the event at su.se/play.

Marc Abrahams, Ig Nobel prize initiator
Marc-Antoine Fardin, winner of the Ig-Physics prize, for using fluid dynamics to probe the question "Can a Cat Be Both a Solid and a Liquid?".
Alex Garcia-Faura, winner of the Ig-Obstetrics prize, for showing that a developing human fetus responds more strongly to music that is played electromechanically inside the mother's vagina than to music that is played electromechanically on the mother's belly.
Bruno Verschuere, winner of the Ig-Psychology prize, for asking a thousand liars how often they lie, and for deciding whether to believe those answers.
