    Like many other fields, science has its fashions, and at any given time, some areas are considered more interesting than others .Often these are new areas where people are making rapid advances . Many scientist move on from a problem as soon as it gets too hard to make further progress. Those who are very creative open up entirely new areas, but some others just follow one fashionable area after another. If everyone did this our understanding of phenomenoa would be quite superficial, but fortunately there are others scientists who stick with a problem, no matter how old and difficult it is, to get right to the bottom .
