The Next Thirty Years — Will it Fulfill our Expectations?

  • Robert M. Nowak
Conference paper


There is an old English saying, “There’s nothing new under the sun.” We, as scientists, know that this is not true. In fact, companies who embrace that philosophy usually find themselves economically disadvantaged and often bankrupt due to the technological innovations of their competitors. A company called Photoprotective Technologies, Inc. uses as a slogan on one of their brochures, “There is something new under the sun.” And that new emanates from science and technology. The future for discovery, for the development of enabling technologies, for paradigm shifts, has never been brighter. Science and technology will never let us down. It will always be exciting, fast moving, and highly competitive.
