Science Quotes of the Week:

  • The best way to predict the future is to invent it. -Alan Kay
  • A few observation and much reasoning lead to error; many observations and a little reasoning to truth. -Alexis Carrel
  • There is a theory which states that if ever for any reason anyone discovers what exactly the Universe is for and why it is here it will instantly disappear and be replaced by something even more bizarre and inexplicable. There is another that states that this has already happened.
    -Douglas Adams
