90 Notes

Whatever you’re doing right now is not nearly as awesome as what Mow Lin was doing in 1983.
As a longtime chemist at Brookhaven, Lin held 9 patents, published 85 papers, and won several national awards. In his most recent work, he was developing specially designed bacteria to decontaminate water used in natural gas recovery processes. After his death in 2003, he was posthumously nominated for the Lemelson (MIT’s lifetime achievement award), and a Brookhaven scholarship was set up in his honor to help students who come to the United States — like Lin did in 1972 — to pursue higher education and research that will make significant contributions to improving lives for all mankind. 
He was a pretty amazing guy. And he also, evidently, had access to some pretty cool glassware, eh?
