Did You Ask Any Good Questions Today?

Every afternoon when he got home from school, the little boy had to answer the same question from his mother. “Did you ask any good questions today?” That one question created a habitual curiosity in one small immigrant child who would grow up to be a well known physicist of the mid-1900s. In fact, in 1944, Isidor Isaac Rabi was awarded the Nobel Prize for Physics for his work with the magnetic properties of atomic nuclei.

Thanks to his mother, he asked some very good questions.
