From play to science

Scientists have found out that their fellow scientists come up with Nobel winning ideas during moments of relaxation and play. Richard Feynman and Alexander Fleming are just two of them who had ground-braking ideas whilst cultivating their hobbies.

Some of the hobbies that were found among Nobel laureates are: music, visual arts (18% out of the 134 people questioned), poetry.

An important conclusion is drawn at the end of the article: “The Root-Bernsteins maintain that the key is not to just slave away at the piano or the easel, but to ‘find the links between everything in your life, the connections that others miss.’ You may not unlock the origins of the universe, but you’ll see the world in a different way.”
