Alright… i’m doing a science project for good ol’ highschool science… and i am having alot of trouble finding info on the cell… so i’ll post my few questions… ^^;;;
1. Who first identified the ribosome?
2. What does it do?

-Annoying typos.. sorry about all that… ><-

Ribosoms were discovered by George Emil Palade, A ROMANIAN!!!

apparantly romainia isn’t so unimportant then MrMistery 😉

LOL… Not from this point of view
A man named Nicolae Paulescu discovered insulin in 1921. For rediscovering it, Banting, McLoud and Best got the nobel prize in 1922. In 1996 Paulescu’s merits for discovering the hormone was recognised and now the whole world agrees that he should have got the Nobel…
*why it is better to be born in the US than Romania…*

Banting was born in Canada. in fact in London, Ontario. A fact that is hard to ignor when you are living in London, Ontario even for only one year 😀

it is CHINESE scientists who synthesized protein for the fiest time in 1965.

this is turning into a “who’s country has the coolest researchers” thread
November 17, 2005 at 1:15 am #32937
Wow… i thought this thread was gonna die… lol… ^^ and yes.. Canada is the best country in the whole D*mn world!!!! XD

Huhh I live there but I wouldn’t completely agree. But still it’s high on my list 😉
France is much better, and there are some cool french scientist… ANd I am trying to join this club (I am already a french scientist, but not a cool one yet 😀 )

i am only a college student…

I am in high-school, so it doesn’t matter
What do you have too do to get the “cool” title?

I don’t know. A least not being at the edge of nervous breakdown half of the time would be a start 🙂 But science sometimes make you feel like manic/depressive: Manic with joy when your experiments are working, and depressive when they do not work or do not give you the expected result. I can turn from one state to the other many times a day…
But all the cool scientists you named are one that reached some fame. I am still far from that. Not a paper in Science or Nature 8) Well maybe not too far if my boss is right and if we can confirm some of my results, but this is far from being a certainty, so…
November 17, 2005 at 7:39 pm #32997
LOL… all the scientists i mentioned got the Nobel prize, so maybe that is your ticket to coolness

I am pretty sure that at least when you become a nobel you don’t have a boss to bug you anymore… And you can cool off by bugging you own post-docs then 😈
But I am still low on the food chain, with just enough responsability to be bugged more than the regular slave/student. But still I love my job 😀
November 17, 2005 at 7:54 pm #33001
LOL… I hope you speak(aaah.. type) only true things. But if that ever happens, i will treat my emploees good, knowing that they are smart people with dreams just like mine..

I wouldn’t, I know how lazy I am, and how badly I sometimes need to be recalled to go to work instead of spending all my time on Internet forum.
In fact you have to find the balence between between relax and stressful to get results. And my boss is not that bad, it just get annoying when those *!@^** experiments don’y work as they should. In fact I understand him when is no really happy when about 400 of my PCR didn’t work. And I wasn’t happy either.
