Question: who is the best of science of you 5?
Blanka Sengerova answered on 28 Jun 2012:
Oooh that is a challenging one! I will provide you with a bit of a cop-out answer because I don’t think you can say which one is the best at science because we all research slightly different topics. We know a lot about the stuff that is our subject of study but much less so about other people’s topics. Which is why time and time again you’ve read all of us having to say “I had to look this up” or “I didn’t know” when we answer your questions. Scientists aren’t all-knowing, we’re just human too! 🙂 But thank you for a thought-provoking question!

Well I’m going to go as far as saying it’s not me – I’m still only a PhD student and so have a lot more to learn about doing science! But as Blanka says, it would be very difficult to make a fair comparison because we all cover such different things.
Oh, and again like Blanka says – we definitely don’t know everything! I think I’m learning nearly as much as you guys from all the questions you’ve been asking! 🙂

Like Blanka says, we’re all trying to become experts in our own little corner of science, but I don’t think anyone of us are the best at science! Most of the scientific papers that get published have at least two names on them – science is all about working with other people, because no-one is clever enough to do it all on their own!
There were lots of people in my university class that were cleverer than me, too, but they went and did other jobs. Being a scientist isn’t always about being the cleverest – it’s about being interested in answering questions and finding out new things!
