    1. Carl Djerassi Roald Hoffmann Is a well-known author, some of his books are a fascination for readers like in the Oxygen: A Play in 2 Acts book, this is one of the most wanted Carl Djerassi Roald Hoffmann author readers around the world.

    2. Read for my Science in Fiction course. Interesting to read and dissect characters in a play, but I found the story a bit dry.

    3. An okay read by itself but since I had to read it for a class I am able to appreciate the topic in question and the questions raised by the authors. As a science student I have now a new awareness of the scientific world and it's dynamic. The play has some problems though: I never fully understood why it felt like Ulla and Ingrid were sharing a secret (I swear that for a while I thought they were lovers or something) or even why Ingrid brought Ulla along.

    4. It's probably (surprise surprise) so much better as a play one watches rather than reads. But a lot of concepts to think over about science and scientists: who gets credit, does it matter, the role of women in science, and the relationship of science and scientists with other subjects like history and language.

    5. This play is part of the slim "literature of science." Copenhagen is far better literature but light on the science part. This actually does manage to raise some good scientific-philosophical issues but it is BAD literature, maybe too awful for people on this site. It's an exciting genre but nobody seems able to do it right. I'd be happy if someone would correct me on this, however.

    6. one of the ruffest plays ever written, which i humbly starred in when i was 19 years old. i also met the playwright who at one point wanted me on a trapezee. don't ask.
