What Would Einstein Do? Part XVIII: Alan Stern

By Melissa Lafsky | October 14, 2008 12:15 pm

What are the three most important things the next U.S. president needs to do for science? To cut through the jargon and find an answer, we bring you the DISCOVER Science Policy Project, in which we give a group of the country’s most celebrated scientists and thinkers the chance to state their views. All past responses can be found here.

ALAN STERN
Planetary science researcher, former Associate Administrator of NASA

Set an integrally scientific and technological course forward. Mr. President, challenge the nation to lead the world and show by example how science and technology can transform the twenty-first century as deeply and successfully as it transformed the 20th century.

Act as an evangelist for a more scientifically literate public that is better able to evaluate issues such as global change, technology solutions to energy policy, evolution, and gene therapies. Too often our society devalues scientific literacy in the public. Yet with the wide array of public policy issues demanding scientific and technological solutions, our leaders must encourage a broader scientific literacy.

Spark new growth in America’s scientific and technical workforce. America is not training enough engineers and scientists. Mr. President: Fuel the nation’s future by doubling the army of scientists, engineers, and other tech workers who can be deployed to invent and deploy twenty-first century solutions to twenty-first century problems.
