What is one science site you have never visited but would like to?

The Natural History Museum in NYC

What is the most important problem today's science should solve?

An exhaustive understanding of human behavior and the human brain. Basically, I believe our species doesn't stand a chance of surviving our budding technological civilization or progressing toward a peaceful, global civilization if we do not first know ourselves. Our economic and technological endeavors are doomed without an exhaustive and widespread, rigorously scientific and evidence-based consensus on what really drives human behavior... Well that, and the general science illiteracy of the majority of humans.

Who are your scientific heroes or role models?

Carl Sagan, Bill Nye, Paul Hewitt, Feynman, Tesla, Darwin, Huxley, Jane Goodall, Richard Dawkins and the list goes on.....

What turns you on about science?

Psshh...What doesn't turn me on about science?

What are your favorite resources for keeping abreast of general science?

NASA, Scientific American, Popular Science, the internet in general
