Notable Quote: The Edges of Science
...long before normal science gets disrupted, we're likely to find, on the edges of normal science, a coterie of scientists who have happened across some observation that won't fit, and it nags at them. Their work becomes increasingly concerned with making it make sense. They develop experimental programs. They establish labs and accumulate research. Meanwhile, normal science proceeds as usual, barely noticing what's piling up at the edges.
