MSNBC: Santorum—GOP not ‘anti-science’ Good for Jon Huntsman for acknowledging that the first step to getting the Republican Party out of the intellectual wilderness is to stop being anti-science.

These researchers have devised and successfully tested a method of using that problem for the purpose of detecting nuclear explosions anywhere in the world. This is brilliant.
