“If we’re going to delay global warming, what we can do in a big hurry is energy efficiency: better cars, better buildings, better industry.”
Arthur Rosenfeld, California Energy Commission, (CA-9th), The Washington Post, February 17, 2007

“There’s a tremendous amount of work building the apparatus, getting the experiment to work. But sitting there late at night in the lab, and knowing light is going at bicycle speed, and that nobody in the history of mankind has ever been here before–that is mind-boggling. It’s worth everything.”
Lene Hau, Harvard University, (MA-8th), The Boston Globe, March 17, 2007

“You can’t buy a $20 phone without being offered an extended warranty. If you said ‘No’ every single time, you would save more than enough in the long run to pay for the few repairs you actually need.”
Joseph Ganem, Loyola College, (MD-3rd), The Baltimore Sun, February 18, 2007

“In physics, there’s a sense of discovery, and what it contains is far beyond what we imagined we could have imagined.”
Nima Arkani-Hamed, Harvard University, (MA-8th), on what motivates scientists, The Globe and Mail,  February 12, 2007

“For 28 years, we’ve done what we wanted to do, and there’s no reason to stay and generate more of the same data. If people don’t believe us after all the results we’ve produced, then they never will.”
Robert G. Jahn, Princeton University, (NJ-12th), on the closing of Princeton’s engineering anomalies lab, which studied paranormal phenomena, The New York Times, February 10, 2007

“Bubble chamber pictures have played an important role in conveying science without oversimplifying the fundamentals. It’s like, ‘What you see is what you get.’ These pictures are, in my mind, masterpieces of nature’s abstract art.”
Vivek Sharma, UC San Diego, The San Diego Union-Tribune (CA-53rd), March 1, 2007
