Why did you enter the Young Scientist Challenge?
I was searching for science contests and happened upon this one. I decided to enter because it looked like a challenge.
What is your favorite invention of the last 100 years, and why?
What I like about science is the fact that it is so complex, that we keep having new discoveries, and how little we've uncovered about it so far. I'm also fascinated by the spirit and mindset of the pioneers, like Einstein and Darwin, because they introduced completely novel ideas.
In 15 years I hope to be...
I want to be an engineer and a scientist on the side, solving theoretical questions like "Is there a theoretical highest temperature?" I would like to do this because of the challenges and mind-bending problems.
