Why We Became Scientists: Dunderhead

Working with scientists for over a decade has taught me one thing: they are an interesting and varied bunch. Fiercely dedicated to their chosen career, love what they do, very enthusiastic when given half a chance to talk about their research, and very inquisitive. They perk up when somewhere a scientist says “huh, that’s funny.” After all, this often means there’s something new and exciting that they can dig into.

But what lead to them becoming as scientist? Of course I expected the answer that they love science and had an interest in it from a young age. But it’s the journey that led to them being a scientist that’s often filled with interesting choices and anecdotes. It’s this last part that really made it fun to hear their answers and stories.

This time Dunderhead shares his story. He’s the lead scientists and founder of Dunder Industries. A few of his accomplishments are building a time machine, a faster than light space ship, and many, many more stellar inventions. He’s a strong advocate of reason and logic and isn’t shy of defending science.
