Grégoire Courtine: The paralyzed rat that walked #TED : http://on.ted.com/j0E6S
I remember the first time I saw this video, it was a video that fascinated me – using a mouse to seek a possibility if there was indeed something that can help people with spinal injuries get to a better place.
However it was his tutor of PhD’s word of advice to him that struck me the most: why don’t you try?
It may sound simple that question, but often when we talkef of trying out something we never did in our past or taking a chance to venture something that can fail badly, it is a question of are you willing to deal with the uncertainty and chances of failure. For many scientists in history, they often have to put up with disappointments when result did not go their way numerous times, before any desirable results available. That of course take up a lot of patience, to make something work or not at all are very much depending on our courage to keep fighting.
