    “The universe is intricate and elegant. We wrest secrets from nature by the most unlikely routes…Without funding basic research, without supporting the acquisition of knowledge for its own sake, our options become dangerously limited. Without…scientific research, we are in the position of eating our seed corn: we may fend off starvation for one more winter, but we have removed the last hope of surviving the following winter.” – Carl Sagan
