ABSTRACT
The article reports on the request of John Simpson, professor of physics and director of the Laboratory for Astrophysics and Space Research at the University of Chicago for public resource allocation. Simpson testified before the Committee on Aeronautical and Space Science, U.S. Senate, on April 23, 1968 at the issue on the funding for the U.S. space science program and called for every effort to reprogram funds so that scientific enterprise does not perish. Furthermore, he said that the country's preeminence in science and technology, a crucial factor for each major problem of the nation, is in danger of unwittingly being destroyed from poverty to war.
