No, there's not any fame in this for you. You're more of a behind-the-scenes guy or gal. That's okay though. You really don't have a face for television anyway.
Of course, if you also happen to be a talented writer and have a lot to say about chemical engineering, write a book and maybe you'll see it on the shelf of a bookstore one of these days. Better work fast though. Bookstores aren't exactly popping up on every street corner lately.
