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

Fermi Lab

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

I believe most of the problems the world faces today are political rather than technical in nature. But here's a list of some science problems: end the hospital drug shortage, adaptation of food crops for warmer climates, ways to increase potency of antibiotics, finish the eradication of Polio, converting non-food crops or crop waste into ethanol rather than using corn, training China how to deal with a nuclear power plant melt down (they've built so many in the last decade and I don't want them to end up like their high speed trains), continued research on malaria, send probes to Mars rather than humans (cheaper and safer).

Who are your scientific heroes or role models?

Hmmmm.

What turns you on about science?

NASA going to the moon got me interested in science.

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

I'm only scratching the surface: The Economist Magazine, Google New Science & Technology, Wall St. Journal.
