Open source science someday will make a big difference. The problem will always be the protection of intellectual property and claims of discovery that could bring the Nobel Prize to one person or group, or give it to another. The question concerning who discovered what and when, is a problem with open source science. Sometimes different groups are working on the same project and separately discover the same thing at almost the same time.  Today with such things as Blockchain technology and , groups might be able to work more closely together , patents, copyrights, and intellectual properties better protected, who did what and when protected in the process of software input.
