Ada E. Yonath: “The challenge of science is like climbing Mount Everest”

I was always curious. I wanted to know how the world functions. Among my early experiments is one that I performed at age 5 − it ended with an accident. I wanted to measure the height from the floor to the ceiling in our home. At the time, we were living in Jerusalem in a four-room apartment shared by three families − we were very poor. I went on the balcony, I piled up furniture, a table, chairs, but still didn’t reach the ceiling. I tried to climb on top, but fell into the backyard instead and broke my arm. Fortunately, I continued to be curious, and my scientific ambition survived.
