    no one goes into science with the sole intent of getting a nobel prize. Lets face it, you aren't going to get it. I remember once a physics professor saying ''unless your doing groundbreaking research by age 30, you aren't even in the running for a nobel prize''.

    Your chances of winning the lottery are greater than that of winning the Nobel Prize, no joke.

    Unfortunately science is not a sport or an art. There are many bright scientists out there who did groundbreaking research and yet they have't won Nobel Prize and they never will.

    If you want do do sth for your personal glory science is very bad choice.

    Also depends on your field. Some fields will never produce a nobel prize but are great in industry, and some will produce nobel prizes but little employment in industry and that's just how it works.
