No one is dreaming about tomorrow anymore …

Came across this video a few days ago and its message really resonated with me.

Research isn’t just for the scientists who do it.  It’s for everyone:

“Scientists, engineers, mathematicians and technologists … they are the ones that make tomorrow come.”

  1. I wonder if it has to do with the attitude I see a lot more of lately, in that many are all, “I got mine, so @#$% you!” It’s really sad and not a bit scary that this sort of anti-intellectual, antisocial behavior is taking hold. I’m not sure what we can really do about it, aside from making attempts at countering it with reasoned arguments? It’s tough though.

    Also, I have a soft spot in my heart for the space program, I wanted to be an astronaut SO BAD when I was little. My mom sewed my doll and me matching astronaut outfits; they were of course exceptionally shiny :)
