Serendipitous Science

And the reason that I’m here today (in terms of serendipity) is that I saw [tensegrity structures] for the first time when I was an undergraduate at Yale in a sculpture class that I just happened to take the same week that I learned to culture cells. And that, as they say, is the beginning of the rest of my life.Donald Ingber - Serendipitous Science Lecture (PopTech)
