Egg unboiler spins into top science stories of 2015

When Flinders University’s Professor Colin Raston unboiled an egg earlier this year with his ‘Vortex Fluidic Device’, in a feat previously considered impossible by science, he made TV screens and front pages all over the world.

No yolk! Colin Raston uncooks egg, wins Ig Nobel!

Flinders University can boast an Ig Nobel prize! Professor Colin Raston has been honoured with the coveted award for inventing a device that can change the structure of proteins, famously demonstrated by uncooking an egg.
The feat of science that has “made people laugh, then made them think” has earned him and his team a “baby” Nobel, a prize almost as famous as its Swedish namesake.
