At Terra Sigillata, blogger Abel Pharmboy wonders about the state of American science. The physiology or medicine Nobel winners this year were all European as were the physics winners, he writes.

Myers adds that the current Nobel winners did their award-winning work decades ago so that they can only tell us about science during the 70s and 80s.
