Lets not forget what Australia is about to loose; funding for Research, Technology, Science and Higher Education.

An appropriate Carl Sagan quote to consider in this dark hour for Science, Technology, Research and Education in Australia. If we combine our voices, we will be heard.

Policy - Governance  - 
 
For the first time since the 1920's the Australian Federal Government does not have a Science ministry, or a Minister to advocate and care for that essential portfolio.

Science is much more than Industry. The Higgs Boson would not have been discovered if translational only funding was available.

And yet, once the pure Science is done, great portions of knowledge become available.

Are we prepared to have our government abandon Science?
