With Scotland's independence referendum just two days away and polls predicting an extremely tight outcome, many have voiced concerns on how a split would impact the science research.
Universities and Science Minister Greg Clark, said a split would be "a tragedy for science."
"They (Scotland) do fantastically well," Clark said at the British Science Festival last week. "To disrupt, to rupture what is a successful system would be a real step backwards. I very much hope in the interests of science and the prestige of U.K. science that they stick with us."
