The Atlantic’s Big Science Summit will celebrate the success of American scientists as they inspire the world through successful missions such as the Curiosity Rover on Mars –seeing the US become the first nation to land an operative vehicle on the Red Planet.
More than half of the world’s engineering bachelor’s degrees are earned in Asia, according to the National Science Foundation, while American graduates account for just 4 percent of these degrees.
However American companies are still at the forefront of global innovation, with Silicon Valley serving as a hub for revolutionary new ideas and technologies. Breakthroughs in disease research, product development, space exploration, and more have all incubated in American labs.
