    you can hope, but it won't be in this lifetime/politico-economic climate

    we can hardly manage/exploit/secure the data we already harvest, what chance is their for inter-disciplinary/inter-organisational cooperation?

    Maybe chemistry..I have always felt that there is something that we're missing..some vital huge bit of information, that will tie up a lot of loose ends..maybe it's physics, but it ties in with chemistry.
    Is it that by its indefiniteness it shadows forth the heartless voids and immensities of the universe, and thus stabs us from behind with the thought of annihilation, when beholding the white depths of the milky way?

    The fact that you have physics only being linked to Engineering shows how unqualified you were to post such a question. The growing link between Biology and physics would be difficult to to exaggerate

    The boundaries between the fields are artificial and useless, except for taking classes. To excel in science, you've got to incorporate all kinds of techniques and technologies.

    Rhinosaur got it correct. Sciences are not discrete areas anymore... (actually they've never been... but we can pretend in the past)

    Biochem = biology + chemistry
    Physiology = biology + chemistry + physics
    nanotech medical devices = biology + chemistry + physics
    MRIs = biology + physics

    And math and statistics is needed underlying all research.

    Most potential? I can't wait to see.

    Presumed to have the greatest effect on the most people?
    - Information analysis. Businesses are trying to take as much stock as possible in who you are, your likes and dislikes. This is where their money is being increased, R&D with analysis technologies and firms.
    - Anti-security and security technologies

    I see huge potential in energy transfer in the future. Too bad, i am noty smart enough to get into that industry.
