most areas of science and technology, the origins of new breakthroughs
can still be found in the work of a small number of people -- or even
a single person -- working at their own pace on their own questions,
pursuing things that interest them. "

of course, enables discoveries but does not guarantee they will occur.
Lack of funding can almost certainly guarantee that discoveries will
not be made."
- Ronald Arkin, Georgia Institute of Technology
is to the rest of science what machine tools are to engineering. A
corollary is that science places power in our hands which can be used
for good or ill. Technology has been abused in this way throughout
the ages from gunpowder to atomic bombs."
