Stem Cell Research in Humans

Back in June I made a post about new stem cell technique that made skin cells, in mice, into embryonic stem cells.A few days ago in Bloomberg a news report said that two research groups, one in US and one in Japan, have shown this to be possible in humans; They inserted four cells into the skin cells and turned them into stem cells. The stem cells are shown to be able to turn into, at least;heart, brain, muscle, fat and cartilage cells; The researchers said that over 10,000 labs could do this technique right now.
This means almost nothing but I nominate these researchers for the Nobel prize.
