It's a reasonable question.


The good news, however surprising or even unbelievable, is that so many
investigators are primarily motivated not by the thought of fame or monetary
profit (however undeserved), but by the hope that they will be remembered as
having obtained significant new results that will stand up under intense
scrutiny, and as having thereby benefited humanity.


I know.  I've been there.  I've worked with all kinds.

Some counterpoint to Carl Sagans Science as a Candle in the Dark:


Crack Down on Scientific Fraudsters



When so much is riding on getting a particular result, what is the
motivation for integrity?
