What Science is really all about.

 

After almost a year working in a lab someone finally sent me the meaning of Science and Research

“Now what is the message there?

The message is that there are known “knowns.” There are things we know that we know.

There are known unknowns. That is to say there are things that we now know we don’t know.

But there are also unknown unknowns. There are things we don’t know we don’t know. So when we do the best we can and we pull all this information together, and we then say well that’s basically what we see as the situation, that is really only the known knowns and the known unknowns. And each year, we discover a few more of those unknown unknowns.'”

 Completly clear now is it not. I feel like my eyes have been opened…

 

Don’t you?
