"It seems obvious to me to use words as best as I can in teaching myself and my coworkers. The words are important in science, as much as we might deny it, as much as we might claim that they just represent some underlying material reality."

Happy birthday to Roald Hoffmann!

From homeless street urchin to successful scientist and Nobel Laureate.

Mario Capecchi, born 1937, spent years on the streets in Italy and nearly died of malnutrition in a hospital. He was awarded the 2007 Medicine Prize.

Today marks the 101st birthday of Nelson Mandela, a man who believed in human rights for all.

The Nobel Peace Prize laureate was South Africa's first black president. 'Madiba', as he was affectionately known, is among the great heroes of history.

"I had a teacher that didn't like me and I didn't like him. At the end of the year he decided to fail me. The ironic thing is that the topic was chemistry. I have the distinction of being the only Chemistry Laureate who failed the topic in high school!" - Tomas Lindahl.

When do you feel inspired and get your most creative ideas?

Nobel Laureate Alvin Roth sees problems around him that he wants to fix. For a while, he worked passionately to improve school election systems. Roth gets many of his ideas whilst running on a treadmill.

#OTD, 14 July 1867, Alfred Nobel demonstrated dynamite for the first time at the Merstham Quarry in England. He set fire to sticks of it, threw packets of the explosives from a cliff, and detonated it in various ways to demonstrate both what it could do and its safety.

In 1924 Albert Einstein predicted a new state of matter, the Bose-Einstein Condensate on the basis of calculations by Satyendra Nath Bose (right).

70 years later Eric Cornell and Carl Wieman achieved this extreme state of matter. Their resulting paper was published #OTD in 1995.

Happy 84th birthday to chemist Ei-ichi Negishi!

Negishi began developing chemical reactions in which carbon atoms are bound together so that new compounds are created. The reactions create cross couplings between carbon atoms, with the metal palladium as a catalyst.
