Notes

The National Academy of Sciences is both an honors society and a research organization. Electon as a "member" typically connotes that the member has reached a highly esteemed status within the sciences. However the NAS and its subsidiary body, the National Research Council, also assemble panels to study scientific research programs and pressing science-related problems in order to advise the government and other organizations on possible policy options.
