Here’s to you, scientists! Yesterday you introduced us to a fish that suckles its young. Today you revealed an exoplanet that almost certainly evolved life. Tomorrow, you’ll probably blow our minds again. You should feel like big rockstars!
Can you imagine a world in which dedicated scientists are celebrated instead of being treated like boring dorks? What if every little kid’s role model wore a lab coat? What if there were as many high schoolers with basement laboratories as there are with garage bands? What if millions sat glued to their televisions watching TED Talks instead of American Idol?
I don’t know about all of you, but that sounds like my kind of planet. Geeks rule!
