Improbable Research’s goal is to make people LAUGH, then THINK. They also hope to spur people’s curiosity, and to raise the question: How do you decide what’s important and what’s not, and what’s real and what’s not- in science and everywhere else?

Past winners include:

  • Research on the use of human saliva as a cleaning agent
  • Calculating the caloric intake from a human-cannibalism diet
  • “Nocturnal penile tumescence monitoring with stamps”
