Tools in science


When talking to non‐scientists, it is rather amusing how much the Victorian view of a scientist still lingers. Many people, still view us [scientists] as crazy people working in basements (alright, that might contain some truth), who solve unholy puzzles using tools like beakers with colorful liquids and fuming test tubes. Sometimes, we burst out into euphoric cries of EUREKA when some incomprehensible problem is solved just prior to a minor explosion that causes our hair to stand up in disarray.
