Very interesting article - Just shows that humble, even discreditable, origins can have a commendable outcome.

Talking about essay contests, anyone know when is the next FQXi essay contest is likely to be announced? I've been checking their site http://fqxi.org/ for months, but so far not a squeak (just a message saying "stay tuned")

What a fun Insight. Thank you for sharing.

I believe that many laymen think that since science is supposed to be rational and logical, that science history should also be rational and logical; leaving a trail of little arrows all pointing in the direction of present knowledge. One could use this article as a grand example of the falsity of that belief.

OwlHoot, not sure about that one, but AIP has a physics essay contest going on: http://scitation.aip.org/aip/magazine/physicstoday/info/physics2116/
