125 Science Questions

The July 1, 2005 issue of Science published a list of 125 important questions in science. I think this list is a must-read for anyone interested in science and engineering. Before you read through the questions, think about what questions you expect to find on the list.

Here is the list of 125 Science Questions (in PDF format).

Is your field well-represented on the list? If not, what do you think are the most important questions in your field?

Several short essays accompanied the list of questions:

Editorial - Donald Kennedy, editor in chief
What Don't We Know? - Donald Kennedy and Colin Norman
In Praise of Hard Questions - Tom Siegfried

All of this material is also available at Science Magazine, in many short PDF's.
