Quote of the day

Often, scientific “failure” teaches you more than success … An experiment which gives you a clear answer is not a failure; it can surprise you, though. Failure comes only when an experiment answers no question — usually because it’s been done with ignorance or sloppiness. The true trick in science is to know what question your experiment is truly asking.
