Sometimes it's easy to look at the world and feel a bit hopeless. We can't seem to escape the evils of war, disease, pollution and Seth Rogen movies. But I still think the human race is worth believing in...because we invented Science.
The word Science comes from the Latin Scientia which means "knowledge" and it's through knowledge that we will survive. The more we learn about the world, the better we can make it for ourselves and for each other. That's why Science matters and that's why Science will save our species.
