These are tales from our laboratory, about events or discoveries, both routine and extraordinary, that interest us. Like science, some of these tales will seem mundane, even trivial, and some will seem like wonderful dreams, but between the four walls that comprise our space, they enlighten and motivate us. If science is more about how we acquire knowledge, than about the specific reactions that occur in a test tube or what grows on a Petri dish, then this is our acquisition process. So if the lines between science and art and the world in general blur, then we’re probably on the right track. In the words of a friend and colleague Bill, scientists are “trained observers.”
These are our observations.
