Answer: Andrew Geim
"What's wrong with the frog in the cup?", You may ask yourself and look at the picture here. And let's be the first to tell you, friend, this is not a frog in a cup, it's a frog that floats magnetically in a magnetic chamber like a very organic and highly unlikely desk toy. And besides, this is not some old frog in the magnetic lab of an old crazy scientist, that's the frog of Dr. Ing. Andrew Geim, suspended in his laboratory, as a result of experiments with magnetism with Dr. Ing. Michael Berry.
More specifically, the two explorers investigated the direct diamagnetic levitation of water and now, one thing led to another, and finally in 2000 the duo was awarded an Ig Nobel Prize, an award dedicated to unusual, interesting or trivial scientific research was certainly interesting, if that was all, then maybe our quiz question today would be: "Who got an Ig Nobel prize for hovering frogs?"
The most interesting part of our history will unfold in ten years. Geim 201
