Science flourishes where art and free speech flourish."

This was somewhere out on rocky Pluto, where the sun is just another star, shining only a little more brightly in the darkness. This, thought Shadow, is justm a jhair away from places where air comes in buckets and pours just like beer."
Author: Neil Gaiman
