  1. He says something like this: "Basic research asks basic questions, sees phenomenon and sees what many people have seen but think what no one else has thought. This is the idea of discovery. Non-directed research. 
    Nobody else directs it. Which doesn't mean you don't direct it. You better direct it."

  2. This lecture was recorded on July 2014, and he passed away one month later… WOW
    Such dedication to science and humanity is something truly awe-inspiring.
