A really nice thing about Science

I read this article in The Hindu (http://www.thehindu.com/opinion/op-ed/article2639869.ece) yesterday which reports a news from CERN that even the great scientist Einstein could be wrong. It’s not the possibility of somebody like Einstein being wrong which makes this news special rather it shows a really nice thing about science. That is the fact that no theory is ultimate and no one is supreme. The subject is dynamic where anything can be questioned and everything will be questioned before accepting it. Any theory will be accepted if it can explain better than the previous one. The replaced theory and its writer will only be remembered as the one who showed the right path if not the destination. Science is where nothing is taken for granted and tries to make sense of everything.It is the quest for truth and way forward for humanity.
