Scientific observations.

[ILLUSTRATION OMITTED]

"Those discoveries that most change the way we think about nature cannot be anticipated.... Beware of subtle, unexplained behavior; don't dismiss it. Frequently nature does not knock with a very loud sound but rather a very soft whisper, and you have to be aware of subtle behavior which may in fact be a sign that there is interesting physics to be had."--NOBEL LAUREATE DOUGLAS OSHEROFF, SPEAKING IN JULY AT THE NOBEL LAUREATE MEETINGS AT LINDAU IN GERMANY.
