Abstract

This trial has been closely followed by the media and the major scientific journals, from Science to Scientific American, from Nature to Lancet. Thousands of scientists have signed appeals for or against. It is often artificially and falsely reported as "Mediaeval justice", but in this story there is an attempt to build an illuminating justice, for the global dilemma that relates to the responsibilities of scientists, politicians, technicians, economic operators and citizens. The phrase about "delinquencies of this kind" was used by the Inquisition in the condemnation of Galileo Galilei and was taken up and commented by Bertrand Russell.
