Professor Lipscomb talks about [3] how the directions of his research abruptly changed in 1964, about how to get confidence in ideas that nobody believes in (3:30), why music is a very important part of his life (5:40) and how a chemistry set for kids made him enter science (9:55). He also gives some advice to young students (11:26).
