In consequence, science is more important than ever for industrial technology.
My graduate studies were carried out at the California Institute of Technology.
One other hobby of mine has been playing the oboe but I have not kept this up after 1969.
Industry now should become a full partner of government in supporting longrange basic research.
In 1975 I met Alison Brown and in 1982 we were married. She works for Cornell Computer Services.
Scientists under all forms of government must be able to participate fully in international efforts.
The scientist's inquiry into the causes of things is providing an ever more extensive understanding of nature.
The hardest problems of pure and applied science can only be solved by the open collaboration of the world-wide scientific community.
My father was on the faculty in the Chemistry Department of Harvard University; my mother had one year of graduate work in physics before her marriage.
While at Cal Tech I talked a lot with Jon Mathews, then a junior faculty member; he taught me how to use the Institute's computer; we also went on hikes together.
