Does Science Advance one Funeral at a Time? 科学の進歩は葬式ごとに行われる?

今日のQuote。Quoteって日本語でなんていうのでしょ? 名言? 

“A great scientific truth does not triumph by convincing its opponents and making them see the light, but rather because its opponents eventually die, and a new generation grows up that is familiar with it,” - Max Plank (1858-1947)

New science blooms after star researchers die, study finds(MIT news)
Deaths of prominent life scientists tend to be followed by a surge in highly cited research by newcomers.

Indeed, when star scientists die, their subfields see a subsequent 8.6 percent increase, on average, of articles by researchers who have not previously collaborated with those star scientists. Moreover, those papers published by the newcomers to these fields are much more likely to be influential and highly cited than other pieces of research.

“The conclusion of this paper is not that stars are bad,” says Azoulay, who has co-authored a new paper detailing the study’s findings. “It’s just that, once safely ensconsed at the top of their fields, maybe they tend to overstay their welcome.”
