Application Of Science

In this complex world, science, the scientific method, and the consequences of the scientific method are central to everything the human race is doing and to wherever we are going.  If we blow ourselves up we will do it by misapplication of science; if we manage to keep from blowing ourselves up, it will be through intelligent application of science.

-- Robert Anson Heinlein (1907 - 1988), American science-fiction author, aeronautical engineer, and retired Naval officer, The Pragmatics of Patriotism, address at the U.S. Naval Academy (5 April 1973)
