Editor’s note: Today we have a guest post from Anthony Fu, a graduate student in Chemistry here at UC Berkeley. Guest contributors are always welcome at the blog; just email firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know your thoughts.
I am a graduate student in science because I love gaining new information on how nature works, and I enjoy using this knowledge to improve society. Occasionally, it’s nice to get some perspective on what my contributions mean in the grand scheme of things. With this in mind, I like how Matt Might explains our efforts in pictures.
Even if my contributions are small, at least I can still have fun learning!
