In this paper the challenges on measurement science are discussed, new technologies, such as the internet, gaming, and the smart grid, can be more exciting than measurement science to the latest generation of students, academics, and practitioners.

No series of failures or catastrophes have occurred that can be attributed to issues within measurement science.
