Quote: “A physicist is one of the most employable people in the marketplace…. a trained problem solver. How many times have you heard a person in a workplace say, ‘I wasn’t trained for this!’ That’s an impossible reaction from a physicist, who would say instead, ‘Cool!’”    -Neil Degrasse Tyson (World’s Most Famous Astrophysicist)
