Brief and simplified suggestion on https://www.the-scientist.com/news-opinion/us-lawmakers-propose-doubling-of-nsf-funding-68612:
The funding should at least triple initially for both science and technology for the following main reasons:
1.0 Nano, quantum, and beyond sciences and technologies are far more complex in that order than macro and micro. And therefore, for meaningful progresses and applications, certain tasks not only need to be done in parallell but also duplicated. And in particularly when replication is or has been a serious issue in science.
2.0 In many explorations, no amount of resources could help until there are breakthroughs or breakthroughs in related researches. And therefore, in many cases, extra or additional resources could help work in parallels through diverse concepts and methods to accelerate breakthroughs.
3.0 Development of technology in nano, quantum, and beyond realms would be also in that order far more complex. And therefore, as in 2.0, funding for diverse concepts and methods would be critical or necessary in many cases. And in particularly when technology lags science. And certain technologies can lag the sciences significantly.
4.0 Resources to better develop, build up, and expand scientific and technological knowledge, wisdom, and practices nationally and globally such as STEM and quantum sciences and beyond.
5.0 To save life, prevent disabilities, and heal, time is the essence. And in many or most cases, proper scientific and technological funding are necessary.
and among others such as accelerating meaningful and quality life, well being, and common and greater good in the known physical. And beyond.
And as such funding should not be appropriated based on the norm or past practices researches and applications. Rather need to properly appropriate to make the scientific and technological quests far more comprehensive, efficient, and effective or better as well as more empowering, liberating, and realistic. And in particularly when time is the essence.
