Science career origin stories


I always enjoy seeing stories about what led to science careers.
If you like your origin stories along with a bit of humor, Zach Weinersmith’s SMBC — Science: Ruining Everything Since 1543 has a variety of origin stories: Phil Plait, Elizabeth Iorns Henry Reich, Ed Yong, Emily Lakdawalla, Sean Carroll, Christina Agapakis, Adam Savage, etc.

But who will collect the stories of the bitter grad students trapped doing repetitive, unfulfilling lab work?

Oh, right.
