Sackett interview

Penny Sackett, the recently appointed new Chief Scientist for Australia, and a professor of astronomy at ANU, gave an interview this week on ABC radio on various scientific topics (audio available here).  I was especially pleased to see her support for pure research as well as applied research, given that mathematical research is often placed at a disadvantage due to an emphasis on immediate applications.
