[Extract] Some years ago as an 11th or 12th grade student puzzling over a particularly difficult physics or chemistry problem, I used to wonder whether the study of science was so important. I guess many of you ask yourselves the same question regularly. The decision I made is obvious, but I believe that the question is even more critical to you in the early 1990's. In the world we live in, study of the central sciences such as chemistry, physics and mathematics is of crucial importance. And I affirm that statement, regardless of whether those studies finish at the end of matriculation, or they continue for additional years at University in specific areas of science or in applied areas such as engineering or medicine. By way of illustration, I want to take a (rather light-hearted) look at aspects of a topic often dealt with in the media, and about which you probably feel you have some knowledge. Let me give you a rather different perspective .......
