The Nobel prize would cheer someone up. Chad has an excellent summary of this over at Uncertain Principles, which includes many links to more good stuff.

Nobel Prize for Blue LEDs

That [difference between red and blue LEDs] seems like a pretty small change, dude. How is that worth a Nobel?

It’s not a paradigm shift in terms of the basic physics, but it’s a ton of hard work and new technological development, and richly deserves the Nobel.
