Credit: NSF

Audio Transcript:

President Truman: "Government has a responsibility to see that our country maintains its position in the advance of science. As a step towards this end the congress should complete action on the measure to create a National Science Foundation."

Bill Nye: "Fifty years ago President Truman urged congress to establish a Federal agency to promote the progress of science.

Since then, the work of American scientists and engineers has shaped every aspect of our lives. For example NSF support played a crucial role in the development of barcodes.

Today those dizzy combinations of black and white lines that are found on everything from chewing gum to airline tickets help make our transactions more accurate and efficient. They help industries keep track of products and what people buy. It's science and engineering.

This is Bill Nye The Science Guy inviting you to join me and the national Science Foundation in celebrating fifty years of science and engineering Discoveries."
