Improbable Research, home of the Ig Nobel Prize, is also the home of the Luxuriant Flowing Hair Club for Scientists. To be a member, you have to be a scientist and have (or believe you have) luxuriant flowing hair.
Catherine Asaro (physicist and Nebula Award winner) and Brian May (astronomer and rock star) are both members.
Click through the galleries to see photos and read the members’ stories. It’s oddly soothing.
