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

Have never really thought about a specific location. I would be thrilled to visit any top scientific facility, whether it is an astronomical observatory, a biological field station, or a world class physics lab.

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

Increase general public understanding of science. It would be great now and also would help ensure future progress.

Who are your scientific heroes or role models?

No particular name in mind, but I really admire any scientist who trusted his or her own methods and findings enough to buck current trends, whether or inside or outside the scientific community, and then later triumphed, when results were scientifically duplicated and verified.

What turns you on about science?

Rational, logical approach in order to gain better understanding.

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

Popular publications such as Scientific American, Science Newsletter; Science Journal; websites with science and technology news.
