The Nobel Prize in Physics 2010 was awarded jointly to Andre Geim and  Konstantin Novoselov “for groundbreaking experiments regarding the two-dimensional material graphene”. Konstantin Novoselv is only 36 by the time of being awarded. I am not very familiar of the average age of Nobel laureates, but it is always nice to see a young scientist rewarded by his excellent career.
