“Right now, we have real gaps in our energy research portfolio. We cannot fill those gaps without large-scale, long-term, well-funded and well-coordinated research programs that bring together the best and most innovative scientists and engineers in academia, industry and the national laboratories.”
Eric Isaacs (IL-13th), Argonne National Lab,, June 6, 2011.

“We will not discover dark matter today…We will be doing this again and again.”
