These Kryptonians lived under a society ruled by Science.[1]

Science refers to knowledge, and collecting knowledge. There are several fields in science. On Krypton, prior to its' destruction, science was considered the supreme ruler, as the planet was governed by the Kryptonian Science Council. It was their misunderstanding of Jor-El's science that led to their undoing. Many supervillains have used science for their own personal gain, causing hardship and terror among the general human populace. One who practices or studies science is called a scientist. There have been multiple occasions when the Super Friends have had to stop a mad scientist from causing havoc from his or her terrible scientific creations.

On Earth, Galileo Galilei is often referred to as the "Father of science."

Doctor Lucius LeBon was told by others in the scientific community that his Planet-Splitter was doomed to fail as an experiment. This turned out to be true when he attempted to use it to cut Cygnus-Uno, and it wouldn't power up.[2]
