    I hope you're ready to help us innovate Cloud Pak for Data! Be sure to keep an eye out for our posts later today.
    IBM has been around a long time! Let's test your IBM knowledge with some trivia. 
    🎟  For 1 raffle entry, name the five IBMers who have won Noble Peace Prizes and what they were won for? 
    I would say no cheating, but I think the internet could probably help you find some insights!

    IBM is fortunate to have had five employees who have won the Nobel Prize.
    They are: Leo Esaki, of the Thomas J. Watson Research Center in Yorktown Heights, N.Y., in 1973, for work in semiconductors; Gerd Bining and Heinrich Rohrer, of the Zurich Research Center, in 1986, for the scanning tunneling microscope; and Georg Bednorz and Alex Mueller, also of Zurich, in 1987, for research in superconductivity.

    @Brett Witteck   checked on https://www.nobelprize.org/ 
    they all had prizes in Physics...so the answer to your question :
     'name the five IBMers who have won Noble Peace Prizes'  would be no IBMers.  :-O

    Leo Esaki --> The Nobel Prize in Physics 1973 Prize motivation: "for their experimental discoveries regarding tunneling phenomena in semiconductors and superconductors, respectively."

    Gerd Binnig and Heinrich Rohrer --> The Nobel Prize in Physics 1986 Prize motivation: "for their design of the scanning tunneling microscope"

    Georg Bednorz and K. Alex Müller –> The Nobel Prize in Physics 1987 Prize motivation: "for their important break-through in the discovery of superconductivity in ceramic materials." ​
