Walks of life to the Nobel Prize

Life in the Fast Lane


On October 12, 1999, as the announcement of the Nobel Prize for Chemistry came out on the web, I sent a fax of congratulations to Ahmed Zewail (it was
dawn in California). Later on, it was impossible to reach him by phone, so I decided to wait for another 24 hours and tried the next day. This time I did manage to talk to his secretary, who told me he couldn×t attend as he was going through an article with two of his postdocs. Life as usual! I was flabbergasted! The following day he called me at 10 am (it was 1 am in California) to thank me for the fax and the call. I was deeply moved. Why would he bother to call back when he literally had ™the world over him∫? These two facts summarize for me Ahmed Zewail×s personality: passion and rigor in science, generosity and intelligence du coeur in his relations with others. Reaching the acmes of prestige and international recognition did not change his character.
