RIP Kary Mullis

Kary Mullis was a Nobel Prize-winning chemist and a never-ending source of inspiration.
1Pink Floyd
The Piper at the Gates of Dawn


Mullis was described by some as an "impatient and impulsive researcher" who finds routine laboratory work boring and instead thinks about his research while driving and surfing.
2The Flaming Lips
Embryonic


Mullis expressed disagreement with the scientific evidence supporting climate change and ozone depletion, the evidence that HIV causes AIDS, and asserted his belief in astrology. Mullis claimed climate change and the HIV/AIDS connection are due to a conspiracy of environmentalists, government agencies, and scientists attempting to preserve their careers and earn money.
3Samsara Blues Experiment
Long Distance Trip


Mullis detailed his experiences synthesizing and testing various psychedelic amphetamines and a difficult trip on DET in his autobiography. "Back in the 1960s and early '70s I took plenty of LSD. I found it to be a mind-opening experience. It was certainly much more important than any courses I ever took."
4Swans
The Glowing Man


Known for his quick wit and colorful stories, Mullis enjoyed surfing and married four times. He reported an encounter with a "glowing green raccoon" riding a "neon orange motorcycle" at his cabin in the woods of northern California around midnight one night in 1985. The raccoon proceeded to metamorphose into a singing dolphin at the strike of midnight. He denies having been on LSD or any other drug at the time.
