The Fascinating Story of Fritz Haber: Scientific hero or military monster?

"During peace time a scientist belongs to the World, but during war time he belongs to his country."

"Here's a guy that just wanted to do everything better than it had been done before...and he does...but he does it with a kind of immoral athleticism, he does it without humility, without a lot of doubt. It's a craft, but it's a craft with consequences... I would rather have scientists that carry doubt with them as they proceed." (17:30 RadioLab)

  1. Love Radiolab. I filmed an interview with Jad Abumrad for Roadtrip Nation. I think you'll like what he has to say about life, career, ambition, etc. - Dan Ford
