Quotes

"It allows us to experiment and improve what we do and be faster to market than we could do in the US" he said
"What could be more fitting on the day when Jesus was stripped naked, beaten and hung on a cross?" the program's originators explained in a release. "Blues deal with life's deepest realities, varnish-stripped-away raw pain."
See alsoStoffel FourieDerek Hanekom "South Africa desperately needs a stronger science sector, and it can only have one if more people are involved in science. For all our scientific equipment and fancy technologies, fundamentally it is people who are ingenious and who innovate, not machines and not even computers. South Africa needs the ingenuity that only people can provide" he added
"Science centres such as this one at Matjiesfontein are part of democratising science and technology. The larger the number of our people who understand what science and technology development are about, the more accountable our scientists and technology experts will be. In other words, the more certain we can be that science and technology are used to address our collective needs and promote our shared interests."
