Very interesting, though I am more interested in the power system. I

 "You want to compare brainpans. I won the Westinghouse prize 
  when I was 12, big deal. Published at 19, so what. I got a
  double doctorate from MIT at 22, Chemistry and Geology. I 
  taught at Princeton for two and a half years. Why do I do 
  this? Because the money's good, the scenery changes and 
  they let me use explosives."
