Our Scientists (English Version)

Type:VideoLanguage:EnglishCategories:Personalities FeatureStatus:On going Description: Looking up the sky, scientists are curious about everything in the universe, and they explore various scientific fields without cease. Through countless observations, assumptions and verifications, scientists summarise the natural phenomena, thereby understanding the rules therein, while at the same time, encounter more irregularities and uncertainties.

In the face of the vast universe, a person is nothing more than a tiny dust particle. By one’s own strength, one may not be able to solve even one mystery of the universe in one’s own life. Scientists must conduct collaborative research continuously generations after generations, so as to apply their scientific researches to our lives and benefit mankind. It is exactly because of our curiosity and awe of the unknown that humans will continue to explore and seek knowledge, and that human civilisation will not collapse.

Scientists contribute to society with their intelligence and wisdom. Technological advances bring a great deal of convenience to everyday life as well as better fulfillment of needs in terms of clothing, food, shelter and transportation, thereby enhancing our quality of life. In all these years, Hong Kong has nurtured quite a number of talents in the international arena of scientific research, who carry out innovative research projects in various fields of science in an endeavour to improve people’s lives.

These scientists, including LEE Hun-wei (Environmental Hydraulics), LAM Hon-ming (Life Science), LO Yuk-ming (Molecular Genetics), Nancy IP (Neuroscience), KWOK Sun (Astronomy) and CHE Chi-ming (Inorganic Chemistry), spare no effort in making contributions to science. Despite countless failures, they still persist in the scientific researches which they have chosen. In the end, they make breakthroughs in their researches and benefit different people. In the six one-hour episodes of documentaries, we will go into the science world and get to know about the scientists’ spirit of constant pursuit and being brave to explore on the path of seeking knowledge. We also hope that the importance of scientific research and people’s awareness of it will be aroused.
