A recent survey conducted by the National Science Foundation found that only 74% of respondents knew that the Earth revolved around the Sun, according to results released at the American Association for the Advancement of Science meeting in Chicago.
The result of the bi-yearly survey will be included in a National Science Foundation report to President Barack Obama and US lawmakers. One in three respondents said science should get more funding from the government. Nearly 90 percent said the benefits of science outweigh any dangers, and about the same number expressed interest in learning about medical discoveries.
