"We are trying to design a sustainable and environmentally friendly way of farming." Testing soil quickly to tell farmers: "This part of the field holds water for a longer time, so you can irrigate it less frequently."
"We've created an exceptionally small and extraordinarily powerful device that converts light into energy. The potential applications are exciting because it could be used to produce everything from more efficient solar panels to more powerful optical fibers."
"We don't know exactly which of our current pure science investigations will lead to breakthroughs, but by pushing the boundaries of human knowledge further, we allow for possibilities in the future we can't even imagine right now."
