Sandile Ngcobo, the Council for Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR) specialist accountable for creating the globe’s first electronic laser device, provided what is probably the quickest conversation in the record of media briefings at the statement of the cutting-edge this week. He was standing up in the small, swelteringly hot room at the Nationwide Laser Center, thanked the CSIR for providing him to make the study, said the growth was interesting, and sat down again, to journalists’ applause.
Speaking to the Mail & Guardian on Wednesday, he was similarly self-effacing. Initially from Pietermaritzburg, where his mother and father and bros still live, the 33-year-old Ngcobo is a full-time worker at the National Laser Centre, aspect of the CSIR since 2003, and works in the statistical optics device.
