Science: Funding Cuts Threaten Scientific Research

This is a very profound essay written by Martin Rees, President of the Royal Society, on the recent funding cuts in the United Kingdom.

The sad thing here is that, one could almost transpose this essay with a few changes in names and situations, and it would appropriate to the US as well. As Brian Foster of Oxford University said, it is "scientific vandalism".
