[Comment] Offline: The underrated value of friendship

“Science is a unifier. Science values questions rather than beliefs. Science provides a path for humans to learn about their world, it helps us to create new knowledge and advance our cultures. There are so many forces that divide people; barriers of language, custom, ideology, and belief. Science counteracts these forces, it is a worldwide enterprise that unifies us and brings us together to solve problems and to understand our place in the world. Indeed, science tells us that we share a deep common history as a species, and that we will very likely share a common destiny as inhabitants of a small and fragile planet.” With these words last week, Nobel Laureate Craig Mello (who received his Prize in 2006 for co-discovering RNA interference) accepted a China Friendship Award from Premier Li Keqiang.
