We had an erector set, and I was an avid fan of Popular Mechanics and Popular Science magazines.

Our family was very fond of the University of Iowa. We thought it was a good place to go.

I've never thought I wanted to quit in my research. I would always fail in experiments, which I did at least three times a day.

The main ingredient of the first quantum revolution, wave-particle duality, has led to inventions such as the transistor and the laser that are at the root of the information society.

The development of quantum mechanics early in the twentieth century obliged physicists to change radically the concepts they used to describe the world.
