Scientists debate value of citizens' advisory panels

Abstract:
Scientists perform many wonders, but sometimes they scare the dickens out of people. Genetic tinkering, radioactive nuclear waste, cloning, embryonic stem cells, robots that reproduce themselves and other high-tech developments have stirred widespread distrust and alarm. To address such fears, the National Science Foundation, an arm of the federal government, is experimenting with a system of citizens' advisory panels that it hopes can help head off future eruptions.
