The Royal Institute of Great Britain (www.rigb.org), founded in 1799, is the oldest, and one of the most prestigious, scientific research institutions in the world. Interestingly, part of its original mission was the dissemination of scientific knowledge to the public, a mission that was occasionally challenged by smaller museums catering to a broader audience.

How is this different from the role of science today?
