About Goodheart’s Extreme Science
Welcome to Goodheart’s Extreme Science!
This blog is all about the wonders of our natural world and how science illuminates these wonders.
In the words of Albert Einstein and Loren Eiseley:
“The most beautiful experience we can have is the mysterious. It is the fundamental emotion that stands at the cradle of true art and true science. Whoever does not know it and can no longer wonder, no longer marvel, is as good as dead, and his eyes are dimmed.” Albert Einstein
“In the end, science as we know it has two basic types of practitioners. One is the educated man who still has a controlled sense of wonder before the universal mystery, whether it hides in a snail’s eye or within the light that impinges on that delicate organ. The second kind of observer is the extreme reductionist who is so busy stripping things apart that the tremendous mystery has been reduced to a trifle, to intangibles not worth troubling one’s head about.” Loren Eiseley
“Stuff your eyes with wonder…” Ray Bradbury
