A Scientist in her laboratory is not only a technician: she is also a child placed before natural phenomena which impress her like a fairy tale.
- Marie Curie
We often hear people complaining how science ruined magic and wonder. But I disagree. Nothing is more magical than discovering how things work and recreating those “wonders”.
I took the liberty of changing “he” to “she” and “him” to “her” in Dr. Curie’s quote. She would have wanted it.
