Hennessy explains there are opportunities for spin-off technology from big science government projects which can lead to startups and companies.  GPS, which was a successful spin-off of Gravity Pro-B, is an example.  He believes that the best environments for discovery and creativity are ones that include a wide range of people with different expertise.  Universities are special because they provide the opportunity for people to work together and share ideas, creating a more productive, and more interesting, environment.
