The Impossible Takes a Little Longer: presented April 15, 2015 at a conference in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.
Again and again, intrepid, persevering innovators achieve wonderful things regarded as “impossible.” In this talk, Dudley Herschbach wants to suggest how it is that in science such things are often achieved and to emphasize some implications for science education. First, however, Herschbach tells a story of an “impossible” educational triumph. It conveys key aspects of the scientific enterprise, including the practical value of “curiosity-driven” research and the kinship of science and humanistic arts.
