Turbulence Optimism

“It was at a meeting of the British Association in London in 1932 thatI remember that [Horace] Lamb remarked ‘I am an old man now, and when I die and go to Heaven there are two matters on which I hope for enlightenment. One is quantum electrodynamics, and the other is the turbulent motion of fluids. And about the former I am really rather optimistic.”
