Duplication Quotes (1 quote)
I think we are living in a new time. I think that the ways of working when there was not the current widespread questioning of what science does are no longer applicable. Besides, there is a difference between the sort of research you do when youre developing something for the first time and the sort of thing you have to do to make sure it continues to workand the two different sorts of research are done best by different sorts of people. And, just as with basic science, one needs confirmatory experiments. One cant just have one group saying yes theyre safe, yes theyre safe, take our word for it, we made them and we know theyre safe. Someone else, quite independent, needs to take a look, do the confirmatory experiment. Duplication in this case can do nothing but good.
