Some believe it could become for environmental science what the Super Collider was for physics. 

Its name, N.E.O.N, stands for the National Ecological Observatory Network.  It is a network that will collect massive amounts of scientific data about changes in ecology taking place all across the United States. 

And in this new future of super science, Virginia will play a key role.
