We've already experimented with the atmosphere. When the Van Allen Belt was discovered the military set of hydrogen bombs to see if it would do something to it. The belt was weakened for years afterwards. So this is part of a "proud" tradition the goes back to "we might ignite the atmosphere" of the Manhattan project. :/

Richard: When it comes to aesthetics and science, I wonder if aesthetics springs out from our sense of symmetry. We are evolutionary conditioned to appreciate symmetry in potential partners, and I wonder if that is the reason we appreciate symmetry in art.

One thing that strikes me is the failed attempt for a musical carrer. If Richard had tried to at least partially continue with music, he could have been the first Rock'n Roll biologist. Considering the original meaning of Rock'n Roll it would have been biologically appropriate. :P
