Enthusiastic amateurs hold key to scientific advances
The mysteries of the universe have not been discovered by university
professors and their gifted students but by enthusiastic amateurs, according
to a top biologist.
Professor Brian Ford says scientific advances have come from individuals who
either did not go to university, dropped out of university, or were doing
something completely different when they made their discoveries.
He told Ananova: "The greatest scientific discovery of the 20th century -
the theory of relativity - was made by Albert Einstein when he was working
as a clerk in the Zurich patent office."
He adds that Michael Faraday, the inventor of electricity, was a
bookbinder's apprentice while American lawyer Chester Carlson invented the
photocopier.
Bill Gates was a university drop-out, as were Charles Darwin and Steve Jobs,
who founded Apple. He adds that Clive Sinclair never even went.
He says that professionals working in their fields were often warned not to
waste their time on projects that eventually revolutionised the world.
"Scientists at IBM were threatened with the sack if they carried on with
their work developing the floppy disk," he said.
He added: "Future policy should be aimed towards encouraging the gifted
amateur. We need to recognise the flair of the gifted individual."
