  Science Quotes
Science is nothing but trained and organized common sense differing from the latter only as a veteran may differ from a raw recruit: and its methods differ from those of common sense only as far as the guardsman's cut and thrust differ from the manner in which a savage wields his club.
Science is facts; just as houses are made of stone, so is science made of facts; but a pile of stones is not a house, and a collection of facts is not necessarily science.
Poetry is opposed to science, and prose to meter.

 MoS | Star Wars: Where Science Meets Imagination   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-09-10)
Developed by the Museum of Science in collaboration with Lucasfilm, Ltd., the exhibit uses the six films of the Star Wars saga as a gateway to understanding new technologies—including real-world robots that respond to requests and vehicles that levitate using magnetic power.
Museum of Science President and Director, Ioannis Miaoulis emphasizes the importance of a technologically literate society and outlines the purpose of the new exhibit.
“Science centers nationwide need to find a way to get people excited about exploring technology and engineering if we want to remain competitive in a world that is increasingly changing and incorporating new technologies,” he remarks.

 1764 - Jack Lindsay
Jack Lindsay's 1764 is close history that you might read in headlines or the neighborhood news, hear as gossip about government officials, or as rumor of the famous wits and infamous criminals.
Details from 1764 are close enough to be readily recognizable, yet far enough into that undiscovered country that we often have a frisson of surprise.
By taking in detail the events of a single year, 1764, this book attempts to show at close range the forces of deep change at work in the 18th century: the forces that turned Britain into the first great industrial nation and thus underlie the whole of modern society.

Graduate math, science and engineering students desiring a PRIME experience should consider applying for one of 12 fellowships in a new University of Washington program, scheduled to begin in fall 2000, that seeks to involve UW students in revamping how middle school math and science are taught and learned.
The Partnership for Research in Inquiry-based Math, Science and Engineering Education program (PRIME) is a collaboration between the UW and five school districts in the Puget Sound area.
Three National Science Foundation projects located at the UW that focus on math, middle school science and inquiry-based science are also taking part.

 USS Defiant (NCC-1764) - Memory Alpha - A Wikia wiki
Captain Kirk was eventually saved when the Enterprise, encased in a Tholian web, entered the interphase, and, upon utilizing full power, was thrown clear of the region while Kirk was locked in the transporter beam.
The ship may have visited Exo III as a chart of it appeared on the wall in one of its science labs.
The Defiant emerged in the mirror universe during the 22nd century, where it was discovered that Tholians in that universe had created the interphasic rift by detonating a tri-cobalt warhead within the gravity well of a dead star, and had sent the distress call which had lured the Defiant to the area.

 The Synergism Hypothesis
It might be called "a science of relationships," as distinct from a science of "mechanisms" or "laws".
The complexity of the problem arises from the interdependence of various component subsystems -- the atmosphere (troposphere and stratosphere), the oceans and other large water bodies, the so-called cryosphere (continental ice sheets), the lithosphere (the earth's crust and upper mantle) and the biosphere (the activities of the earth's biota).
Once determinism and predictability have been decoupled, science need no longer be constrained to shun the unpredictable and to treat the elucidation of "laws" as the Holy Grail.

The presence of nearly vertical (more than 70 deg) cliffs making sharp contact with their floors provides further evidence that Wild 2's nucleus has substantial internal cohesiveness.

Perhaps one lesson to be learned from the Stardust encounter with Wild 2 is that different cometary nuclei may have different physical structures, just as some asteroids may be rubble piles while others are probably not.
