Personal Quote:

What is a scientist after all? It is a curious man looking through a keyhole, the keyhole of nature, trying to know what's going on. See more »

Trivia:

Having enrolled in the French Navy's aviation school, he was about to take his pilot's exam, when he crashed his father's car on a foggy mountain road. He broke both of his arms, one becoming infected. The accident possibly saved his life, since all but one of his fellow aviation classmates were later killed in action during World War II.
