One of my childhood heroes was Leonardo da Vinci. He represented so many things to me: an artist, a scientist and an inventor. I later learned that the step from scientist to inventor is an easy one. While I was never able to call myself an artist, I did manage to rightfully take on the mantles of scientist and inventor. At Jefferson Lab, we are designing and performing experiments in new ways to revel the secrets of the matter that makes up our universe. The search for these treasures of knowledge takes many twists and turns.

I’m lucky. I’m part of a team of scientists, engineers and technicians that have been asked by our country to seek better understanding of the universe. Besides getting new insights into the nature of our universe, the things we learn while conducting research help to make our lives better. I mentioned in an earlier post that basic understanding of the universe gained by probing the mysteries of the atomic nucleus has led to life-saving devices from small smoke detectors to large medical centers that treat cancer.
