  Sir Karl Popper "Science as Falsification," 1963
But this did not satisfy me. On the contrary, I often formulated my problem as one of distinguishing between a genuinely empirical method and a non-empirical or even pseudo-empirical method — that is to say, a method which, although it appeals to observation and experiment, nevertheless does not come up to scientific standards.
It was the problem of drawing a line (as well as this can be done) between the statements, or systems of statements, of the empirical sciences, and all other statements — whether they are of a religious or of a metaphysical character, or simply pseudo-scientific.
This is a slight oversimplification, for about half of the Einstein effect may be derived from the classical theory, provided we assume a ballistic theory of light.

Science impacts our daily lives, our long-term health and well-being, our children, the policies and decisions made that affect our cities, counties, states, and country, and the nature of the world we live in.
Sciences like physics, chemistry and much of molecular biology are largely non-historical, although they may rely on historical observations in particular instances.
Thus, science is reliable; observations and tests are not dependent on the kind of people who practice it, what they might feel about it, or what their previous experiences are.

Science impacts our daily lives, our long-term health and well-being, our children, the policies and decisions made that affect our cities, counties, states, and country, and the nature of the world we live in.
Because science is actually a group activity, each scientist builds on the work of others through criticism and support, and then contributes ideas to be used or criticized by those who follow.
Thus, science is reliable; observations and tests are not dependent on the kind of people who practice it, what they might feel about it, or what their previous experiences are.

 Theology Today - Vol 20, No. 3 - October 1963 - BOOK REVIEW - Science and Religion
The stereotype of science is based on the notion that the scientific method is a kind of logic-machine, which receives data and grinds out infallible truths in the form of scientific theories.
Science is simply a special application of intelligence in general, and its distinguishing features are derived from its subject matter rather than from its method.
Science is, first of all, empirical and descriptive, gathering data by observation and experiment.

 Science & Technology
Modern science and technology were almost non-existent except for some regional investigations into the sciences of geology, biology and meteorology and some scientific research work that did not require experimental equipment.
The State Science and Technology Commission again worked out The 1963-72 Science and Technology Development Plan, which put stress on 374 scientific research projects, of which, 333 projects were in urgent need for the construction of the national economy and defense, with 41 basic research projects.
At the same time, the national conference on science and technology was held, which stressed the important position of science and technology in economic and social development, strengthening national scientific forces and the ability to transfer scientific achievements to products, and enhancing the scientific and cultural quality of all ethnic groups.

 Science and the Public: Description
Although the public understanding of science and technology is of central interest to many policy makers and scientists, there is a heavy debate in the scholarly community as to its nature, relevancy, and measurement.
Science and technology policy decisions, despite their high level of technical discourse, are inherently political, involving negotiations and power struggles among various institutions, interest groups and political figures to decide policy outcomes.
Observers of science and religion have long noted a pattern in which the advance of scientific knowledge encroaches on some territory that was formerly left to theology.

 The Scientist : Meeting Expectations: Reflecting On 30 Years Of Science
In 1963, American science was still galvanized by the Soviet Sputnik satellite that had been launched only six years earlier.
Science in the United States was about the Soviet threat, it was about curing cancer and AIDS, it was about winning the Gulf War, it was about exploring other planets.
My meeting in 1996 was also improved, compared to 1963: more women and minorities in the halls and lecture rooms; a broader view that values good applied science as well as the purest of the pure.

 News in Science - Measles risk for children of vaccinated mothers - 02/11/1999
New research reveals that the children of women vaccinated against measles are more susceptible to the disease because their mothers do not pass on as many natural antibodies as do women who have had the illness.
The research, based on women born in the US after measles vaccine was licensed there in 1963, is published in the current issue of Pediatrics.
Infants whose mothers were born after 1963 had a measles attack rate of 33%, compared with 12% for infants of older mothers.

Space science officials tried hard to preserve the priority of science in both projects, but with limited success.
Notwithstanding that concession, the panels insisted that after the first couple of landings science should determine the content of lunar missions and that the lunar surface activities must be planned with the full participation of the scientific community.
Lunar science planning had begun, in the broadest sense, by the end of 1963, but how much science could actually be done during Apollo was still a question.

 Sir Karl Popper "Science as Falsification," 1963
I wished to distinguish between science and pseudo-science; knowing very well that science often errs, and that pseudoscience may happen to stumble on the truth.
I knew, of course, the most widely accepted answer to my problem: that science is distinguished from pseudoscience—or from "metaphysics"—by its empirical method, which is essentially inductive, proceeding from observation or experiment.
It was rather that I felt that these other three theories, though posing as science, had in fact more in common with primitive myths than with science; that they resembled astrology rather than astronomy.

A significant recent example suggesting that biotechnology is indeed now a ‘big science’ enterprise can be found in the publication in 2001 of the completed maps of the human genome.
The fact that 'discoveries in biotechnology are no longer made by individuals, but as big science, in a collective of scientists, machines and technicians' (Keating, Limoges and Cambrosio 1999: 138), raises a number of interesting questions of organisation and management.

 TIME 100: Person of the Century - Albert Einstein
He was the pre-eminent scientist in a century dominated by science.
He tossed off pithy aphorisms ("Science is a wonderful thing if one does not have to earn one's living at it") and playful doggerel as easily as equations.
And for many advanced thinkers of the 1920s, from Dadaists to Cubists to Freudians, that was a fitting credo, reflecting what science historian David Cassidy calls "the incomprehensiveness of the contemporary scene — the fall of monarchies, the upheaval of the social order, indeed, all the turbulence of the 20th century."
