It depends on what the scientist does. Nowadays
I would say that what most scientists need is a
computer, which was not the case 25 or 30 years
ago. Scientists also need books, lots of them and
databases where they can find useful information
for their research. Some scientists need especial
equipment for measurements or analysis, and they
also need tools, different tools to perform the
kind of work/research that they are dedicated to
Scientists need also time, passion,
understanding, and ethics. Although those are not
tangible tools or instruments, they are
fundamental tools to do research and generate
useful results for the advancement of Science.
