Scientific discovery is in transition from a focus on data collection to an emphasis on analysis and prediction using large scale computation. These computations can be done with unused cycles in commercial Clouds if there is appropriate software support. Moving science into the Cloud will promote data sharing and collaborations that will accelerate scientific discovery in the 21st century.
