What a scene at the home of Nobel winner Michael Levitt, PhD, early this morning. While much of the world around him was sleeping, Levitt could be found padding around in his lightly lit bedroom, clad in a casual tee and cargo shorts, chatting over the phone with reporters, friends, and well-wishers. And I love what happens after the 1:00 mark of this short video: Informed that "it's time," Levitt takes a moment to collect himself and walks barefoot down his hallway to be greeted by a sea of cameras and lights. Certaintly not your average Wednesday morning.
