Professor Lipscomb talks about how the directions of his research abruptly changed in 1964; how to get confidence in ideas that nobody believes in (3:38); why music is a very important part of his life (5:50); and how a chemistry set for kids made him enter science (10:02). He also gives some advice to young students (11:33).
Their work and discoveries range from the formation of black holes and genetic scissors to efforts to combat hunger and develop new auction formats.
