Fundamental science is where new ideas and methods begin that later become commonplace – from the electric light, which originated in 19-century curiosity about electricity, to the World Wide Web, invented at CERN to allow international teams of particle physicists to communicate more easily. No amount of applied research on the candle would have brought us the electric light; no amount of R&D on the telephone would have brought about the Web. Science needs the space for curiosity and imagination.
