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

Cern and the Large Hadron Collider...wait, how about McMurdo station in Antarctica? Or Sealab. Is Sealab a real place?

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

Energy. Big energy issues like powering our cities and industries and little energy issues like how to make small portable energy sources to allow us to continue to miniaturize our technology.

Who are your scientific heroes or role models?

The researchers who spend their time confirming or disconfirming breakthroughs. They will never get the Nobel Prize, but they are they are the ones who keeps science honest by repeating experiments and testing theories.

What turns you on about science?

Sexy molecules.

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

Podcasts: Science and Nature podcasts. Australia's The Science Show.
