CAMBRIDGE, Mass.—The 2011 Ig Nobel Prize Ceremony, an annual event that honors off-the-wall (but still significant) scientific research, took place on Sept. 29 at Harvard University. This year's biology prize went to a pair of biologists who discovered that "a certain kind of beetle mates with a certain kind of Australian beer bottle," as their award stated.
