Just a Quote

I came across this while reading the other day, and thought it captured the spirit of science, in most cases, perfectly.

From The Quantum Universe, by Brian Cox and Jeff Forshaw:

“Science, of course, has no brief to be useful, but many of the technological and social changes that have revolutionized our lives have arisen out of fundamental research carried out by modern-day explorers whose only motivation is to better understand the world around them.”
