Science news today

Science is finished, said the scientist I talked to today. The word implies critique, but it is now taken to mean production and profit. Science not oriented in those directions will not be done again.

This makes teaching very painful, he said. Students go into biology because they know they can make things to sell. They have seen forensics shows on television. They want to isolate pieces of the “genome,” for example, to sell.
