Talking the Spectre of Sequester on Huffington Post Live

I joined a discussion on the new Huffington Post Live site the other day on the future of science funding and the spectre of Sequestration.

Though I would have liked to focus more on the issues of Sequestration than we did, I thought it was a solid discussion of the benefits of funding and the universal threats faced by all areas of science. The other guests were great, especially Fred Guterl from Scientific American. I managed to withhold my fanboy response to meeting the Executive Director of one of my favorite magazines.

Here's the video (~25 min):

Also, I have to correct myself. In the video I said the cost of Curiosity was a nickel per person. It's actually a dime per person per month of development of the mission. I blame being in the sun all day watching the Shuttle Endeavour land.

Joining me were:

  • David Sloan, Post-doctoral Fellow at West Virginia University in the Sensory Neuroscience Research Center
  • Daniel Kraft, Executive Director of FutureMed
  • Fred Guterl, Executive Director of the Scientific American
