As we continue to recover from the recent pandemic, you cannot get away from science and the pivotal role that scientists play in everyone's lives. On one hand; the medical professional and care providers, the researchers, epidemiologists, scientific statisticians and government advisors involved in dealing with COVID-19 itself. While on the other hand there are; the developments in commercial space flight, our dependence on communication technology, the evolution of greener technology,the increasing public awareness of the inherent value of nature and green spaces to our lives and the environmental problems that we have caused and need to fix. The importance of science in our lives goes on and on.
