"If you are a scientist, you believe that it is good to find out
how the world works, that it is good to find out what the
realities are, that it is good to turn over to mankind at large
the greatest possible power to control the world...

"It is not possible to be a scientist unless you believe that the knowledge
of the world, and the power which this gives, is a thing which is of
intrinsic value to humanity, and that you are using it
to help in the spread of knowledge, and are willing to take the
consequences."

- J. Robert Oppenheimer (1904-1967)
