      My favourite thing in science is particle physics – studying the tiny particles and forces that make up our Universe. I also love astronomy, trying to understand how the solar system formed, how stars evolve, the Big Bang. I find it so fascinating! What’s your favourite thing in science?

      Hello Beckie (and caroline12)!

      My favourite thing is sitting down at the computer to see — for the very first time — the protein structure revealed by our experiments (which may take months or years to complete). That’s a real high for me (and for the student or research assistant who did most of the leg-work).

      It is a very special moment of discovery – we get to gaze on something that no-one in the world has ever seen before.

      Hi beckiie and caroline,

      As I’ve said on my profile, my favourite thing is finding new things out. That is what science is really all about.
