size) is available here

Don't hesitate to get back to me if you have any further questions.

Science is a way of trying not to fool yourself.

The first principle is that you must not fool yourself, and you
are the easiest person to fool. So you have to be very careful
about that. After you've not fooled yourself, it's easy not to
fool other[ scientist]s. You just have to be honest in a
conventional way after that.
