The future's so bright..............

Astrophysics is just one small aspect of the fast-growing STEM sector -- science, technology, engineering and mathematics. It is also the reason why I am not in the bearish camp with those who fear that scientific breakthroughs and fast economic growth are behind us. The technology underlying so many areas is growing too rapidly to write off the long-term future of the world economy. One can't be pessimistic while seeing the pace of advancement in areas such as genomics, robotics, alternative energy, nanotechnology, oncology, materials science, wearables, 3D printing, near-field communication -- not to mention software, big data, communications and semiconductors.
The future isn’t coming, it is already here. 
-Barry Ritholtz, as excerpted from here
