I think more scientists should engage in public forums. There are other things than DOIs and h-index, you know, that may be equally if not more important to your overall life achievements. Agreed?
Following up on this teaser posted over a year ago – yikes – I finally got my stuff together and… well, here is me on national television talking about alchemy and setting fire to some homemade black powder. It’s in Swedish, but a dear friend of mine helped me get the English subtitles right. (And yeah I know, you shouldn’t allow others to taste your lab grade alcohol, and you should definitely use safety goggles at all times. And do your experiments in a proper lab; not in some authentic 16th century vault.)
