The work of #science is to substitute facts for appearances, and demonstrations for impressions.

Anybody who has been seriously engaged in scientific work of any kind realizes that over the entrance to the gates of the temple of #science are written the words: ’Ye must have faith.’

Dreaming in public is an important part of our job description, as #science writers, but there are bad dreams as well as good dreams. We’re dreamers, you see, but we’re also realists, of a sort.

Wisdom alone is the #science of other #sciences.

The saddest aspect of life right now is that #science gathers knowledge faster than society gathers wisdom.

#science investigates religion interprets. #science gives man knowledge which is power religion gives man wisdom which is control.

One of the things that ultimately led me to leave mathematics and go into political #science was thinking I could prevent nuclear war.

Before a war military #science seems a real #science, like astronomy but after a war it seems more like astrology.

Just after World War II, this country led the world in #science by every way you could measure it, yet the number of scientists was a tiny proportion of what it is now.

There will one day spring from the brain of #science a machine or force so fearful in its potentialities, so absolutely terrifying, that even man, the fighter, who will dare torture and death in order to inflict torture and death, will be appalled, and so abandon war forever.

There is one thing even more vital to #science than intelligent methods and that is, the sincere desire to find out the truth, whatever it may be.

Art has a double face, of expression and illusion, just like #science has a double face: the reality of error and the phantom of truth.

Ecclesiasticism in #science is only unfaithfulness to truth.

If history and #science have taught us anything, it is that passion and desire are not the same as truth.

The time I trust will come, perhaps within the lives of some of us, when the outline of this #science will be clearly made out and generally recognised, when its nomenclature will be fixed, and its principles form a part of elementary instruction.

When we see the shadow on our images, are we seeing the time 11 minutes ago on Mars? Or are we seeing the time on Mars as observed from Earth now? It’s like time travel problems in #science fiction. When is now when was then?

Time travel used to be thought of as just #science fiction, but Einstein’s general theory of relativity allows for the possibility that we could warp space-time so much that you could go off in a rocket and return before you set out.

Vanity of #science. Knowledge of physical #science will not console me for ignorance of morality in time of affliction, but knowledge of morality will always console me for ignorance of physical #science.

Natural #science will in time incorporate into itself the #science of man, just as the #science of man will incorporate into itself natural #science: there will be one #science.

Time travel used to be thought of as just #science fiction, but Einstein’s general theory of relativity allows for the possibility that we could warp space-time so much that you could go off in a rocket and return before you set out.

Part of the reason that our politics seems so tough right now and facts and #science and argument does not seem to be winning the day all the time is because we’re hardwired not to always think clearly when we’re scared. And the country’s scared.

I’m concentrating on staying healthy, having peace, being happy, remembering what is important, taking in nature and animals, spending time reading, trying to understand the universe, where #science and the spiritual meet.

Daoist thought is the root of #science and technology in China.

In hard-core #science fiction in which characters are responding to a change in environment, caused by nature or the universe or technology, what readers want to see is how people cope, and so the character are present to cope, or fail to cope.

The best museums and museum exhibits about #science or technology give you the feeling that, hey, this is interesting, but maybe I could do something here, too.

I have taught history on the high school and college levels, and am or have been a lecturer at the Smithsonian, The National Institutes of Health, and numerous colleges and universities, mostly on #science fiction and technology subjects.

Triumphant #science and technology are only at the threshold of man’s command over sources of energy so stupendous that, if used for military purposes, they can wipe out our entire civilization.

I hated #science in high school. Technology? Engineering? Math? Why would I ever need this? Little did I realize that music was also about #science, technology, engineering and mathematics, all rolled into one.

In consequence, #science is more important than ever for industrial technology.

I’ve been thinking about the distorted view of #science that prevails in our culture. I’ve been wondering about this, because our civilization is completely dependent on #science and high technology, yet most of us are alienated from #science.
