It aims to promote American strength and competitiveness and to defend American values; to shape critical ethical and policy debates with information and analysis; to inform leaders in the fields of science, politics, industry, and culture with publications that probe the deeper meaning of advanced technologies; and to articulate the human aspirations that drive the scientific enterprise.
