On scientific outreach:
“We have a societal obligation to do outreach. We are fortunate to be able to do what we do and be free to do it. Society funds us. We have an obligation to return the favor to the people who pay us.”

“There is also a grander sense of the obligation of scholars that is important. It is not technology, but ideas that give us perspective in the cosmos. This is the basis of civilization. Science should rise to that…the best ideas are scientific.”
