It’s easy to think that talent alone leads people to superior performance. To challenge that misconception, students may find interest in reading the autobiographic summary of Carl E. Weiman, 2001 Nobel Prize in Physics. He describes his early life at home in the Oregon woods. In high school, he was not at the top of his class. Yet he later, with Eric A. Cornell and Wolfgang Ketterly, revealed a new state of matter, the Bose-Einstein Condensate. Congratulations, teachers, for helping to prepare these people make their discovery. I often wonder who’s sitting in my classes waiting for the time to make other fundamental discoveries in the future.
