A Meeting of the Minds

Here is an article that explains how difficult it is for Nobel prize winners to try to explain their work to the general public. Frank Wilczek, winner of the prize for his work on asymptotic freedom in strong force interaction theory. explains: “A certain patience is required. Sometimes it’s disturbing, the lack of science understanding, but I enjoy trying to explain things to the public.”

Imagine how Wilczek and the other winners felt on Wednesday afternoon when they had an opportunity to meet with the President…

Concentration is important!
