Hi /sci/,

do you think there are still discoveries and worthy inventions that anyone can do on their own, or at least with small budgets?

It feels like any new invention or important scientific success is only in hands of relevant Unis, government or corporations with huge teams and millions to spend.

Do you see any relevant discovery in the next few decades happening in a garage? In what field? Do you play with any idea? I wish I was smart enough to make rockectless space travel a reality, for example.

There probably lots of material specfic macroscropic behaviours (e.g the mpeba effect) that you could find with a simple setup.
>>
a lot of mathematical solutions are, the guy who proved that you cant have pythagorean triplets when the power is more than two was alone and didn't have millions (at least not until he proved it)
>>
also rick sanchez built a flying saucer out of garbage he found in the garage

Possible in computer science and maybe genetics. CRISPR for instance is relatively accessible.

It's just highly unlikely that the most intelligent or best people are in garages.

sonoluminescence is not yet fully understood

What kind of equipment is needed to experiment with CRISPR?
>>
I'm interested in what science there is to do by people with a bunch of money to spend. Say I have a million dollars. Could I use that to make a big scientific discovery? How?

Several shrimp and their prey

We've got to learn how to harvest these shrimps snaps as an energy source.

>>7758828
Who is this Rick Sanchez?
>>
There doubtless is but you're going to have to be real smart to figure out what it is.

CS and math don't really need more than a decent computer. If you can get a real good computer there's a lot of computational work in physics and engineering to be done.

Then of course there are observational sciences which don't even need a garage.
>>
>>7758780
Yes, easily. Just pick anything that won't make money at all and start researching it.
>>
>>7760574
Yes. I'm not sure it will be big but pick any random life on Earth that is not that well studied and include some genetic sequencing.

You'll quickly discover something new about their adaptations.

>>7760797
It's a shitpost about a TV show called rick and morty

>>7760925
Excellent! Now all I need to do is acquire a blow fish.

Mathematics.

That's an unfounded assumption. Maybe the smartest people are making inventions all the time, and just discard them because they don't care.
>>
There's plenty of youtube videos that are just people in their garages doing science. Put some ads on them and maybe you could make a living doing your own research if it's neat enough and you post it on /sci/
