1,104 - Making a Discovery

May 18th, 2015

Episode 241 of 489 episodes

Make an amazing discovery about making discoveries in this episode. Slow dialog: 1:18 Explanations: 2:37 Fast dialog: 12:42 Pierre: How does it feel to be on the cusp of a new discovery? Irene: Let’s not jump the gun. We’ve made some major leaps forward, but I’m not sure I’d call what we’ve done so far revolutionary. Pierre: Not yet, but you’re close to a breakthrough. That’s evident. Irene: I think you might be overstating the case. If we do make a small breakthrough, it will only contribute to the current body of knowledge in the field, not turn the field on its head. Pierre: I think you’re downplaying the possible impact of such a discovery. I think you’ll be recognized as a pioneer, a real trailblazer. Irene: And your contribution? Pierre: You know what they say: Behind every great woman is a great man! Script by Dr. Lucy Tse
