From page 20...
... The goal of basic research is to understand the function of the fact that there may be no obvious value when the experiments are performed, many times this new knowledge leads to breakthrough methods and treatments years or decades later. For example, chemists developed a tool called a nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR)

This material may be derived from roughly machine-read images, and so is provided only to facilitate research.
