Also, indeed. I think tehre's both the pride of the work well done, and the
pride of recognition as a scientist. His ambition is not vain, I think, but
intellectual; he would be proud to win a big prize, and would display it,
but I'm sure he would soon forget about it.

There's a story in which he decides to build a steam rocket after reading
about the centennary (?) of Robert Fulton's steamboat.
