Chiara Mingarelli, “Reaching across the centuries, these seminal science books speak volumes”

At a recent “pop-up” exhibit, Yale physics students took a closer look at more than a dozen trailblazing tomes by Galileo, Newton, Kepler, and others.

Larry Gladney, Phyllis Wallace Dean of Diversity and Faculty Development in the Faculty of Arts and Sciences and Professor of Physics,  and Priya Natarjan, Joseph S. and Sophia S. Fruton Professor of Astronomy and Professor of Physics, are featured in the video, “Curiosity-driven science research” featured in Yale News on September 5, 2023.

Many of the greatest scientific leaps in history were unplanned and unexpected, not the result of applied or agenda-driven scientific research but of curiosity-driven research in which scholars follow their curiosity where it leads them. Curiosity-driven research not only expands our understanding of the world, it underpins virtually all applied research, innovation, and technological development. When researchers in Yale’s Faculty of Arts and Sciences follow their curiosity, it takes them down unexplored pathways, for the benefit of future generations.
