This is the video, about Dr. Harry S. Coover’s discovery of super glue, that was shown at the National Science and Technology Medals Foundation Gala November 2010, in Washington D.C.  It was amazing how many of the medal winners cited serendipity as playing a large role in their discovery.  We think humility must play a role as well or as Louis Pasteur said, “Chance favours the prepared mind.”

Check out this interesting article about super glue inventor, Dr. Harry S. Coover, “One Day of Serendipity-A Lifetime of Achievement“, by Dr. Dave Dunn (January 2011 Adhesives and Sealants Industry magazine).

[Chief Blogger’s Note:  Oh .. and yes, as Dr. Dave states in the article, Super Glue Corporation’s representatives were in attendance, with Dr. Coover, at the November 2010 gala (see pic left) to help celebrate his accomplishment(s)! … No humility here 😉 ]
