Stimulate Science!

Nobel Prize winners David Gross (physics) and Eric Kandel (physiology/medicine) made an excellent case for spending a bit of the much-discussed stimulus package on science, writing in the Financial Times a couple of weeks ago. The piece is here. I recommend a read of it.

I spotted this at Dirac Sea Shore where there are more links to related articles.

    “…Mr Obama has made a commitment to restore scientific funding to the levels needed to maintain the vitality and leadership of US scientific research. We believe that the forthcoming economic stimulus package provides a remarkable opportunity to initiate this effort immediately, forcefully and productively.”

    …So long as they don’t consider kissing research vital to the economic stimulus plans.
