Nothing is more rewarding than being the first curious human being to find the solution to some puzzle about the natural world.I know there's a lot of math involved, what else?
To do good science,
you must be trained in some discipline, like
mathematics, physics, chemistry, or biology,
sometimes in more than one. In addition, you must
know what others have been doing in your field. But that is not enough.
A “know-it-all” is no more a
scientist than a collector of paintings is an artist,
discoveries are made and it is as much a cultural activity as art, poetry, theatre or music. The simple fact that you posed this question leads me to believe that you will be excellent engineer and or scientists.
