Default A guy I work with seriously wants to know what is the need for pure

research in Physics and Mathematics? His view is that if we want a new "widget" why then don't we just make it.Me being an engineer and having studied physics have gone through several inventions / inovations with him to illustrate that one person at one time cannot in isolation come up with any widget without the accumulated knowledge of hundreds, maybe thousands of years of thought / invention / innovation. This still leaves him cold.Out of frustration, I am asking this forum if any one knows of a "potted" reason that may get through to him.......Or should I just thump the ****** twat!!!
