  **footnote: go to the beginning of this storyline.

Isaac Asimov, considered one of the most influencial and prolific science and science fiction writers of our time, took almost ten years to finish his PhD in Chemistry at Columbia University (1939-1948). His graduate work was interrupted by military service in WWII and writing such classics as the Foundation and Robot series and Nightfall among others. He is quoted as saying: "The most exciting phrase to hear in science, the one that heralds new discoveries, isn't 'Eureka!' but rather 'hmm....that's funny.'"
