Today's Topic

After 6 November, either Mitt Romney or Barack Obama will be president-elect of the United States. But regardless of who wins, the next occupant of the Oval Office faces some tough science challenges, both at home and abroad. How has science fared under the Obama administration? What issues should the next president tackle first? And how will the results of the election affect important issues such as stem cell and climate change research?

Join us for a live chat at 3 p.m. EDT on Thursday, 1 November, on this page to discuss how the U.S. election will affect science. You can leave your questions in the comment box below before the chat starts. The full text of the chat will be archived on this page.
