Science uses crowdfunding

See? Government money drying up for science, so they turn to crowdfunding.

The ones that are insisting on the funding say it’s not discretionary because the more “high-level” science yields benefits over the long term.

But their benefits are whatever science results. On occasion something is found.

Compare that to the massively important discoveries of the past that happened with just a single person experimenting. Isaac Newton with math, physics, light, gravity, wow.. He wouldn’t get funding to tell what time of day it is.

Michael Faraday lacked the academic credentials so many funds insist on, but put electricity and magnetism together and added a lot of math.

Neither Isaac Newton nor Michael Faraday would get a penny today because they were both small-age Creationists.
